Membership

DeKalb Entrepreneurial Center’s programs and services will be accessible to anyone in our community who has an entrepreneurial spirit.

Aspiring Membership

The purpose of this stage of entrepreneurship is to determine if your business concept idea or service will be achievable. Is it a real business opportunity or simply a good idea or a hobby? So, the E-Center will help you focus on researching the answer to this question. Should you have a real business opportunity, you will need to identify your target market, your plans for growth, and more importantly develop your unique value proposition for your future customers. Then you will proceed to develop your product or service and determine how you will deliver it to your future customers.

Doing this research after a long day at work while trying to start up your side hustle can get lonely. You are not alone.

Benefits of Aspiring Membership

  2. Monthly business consultation and mentorship provided based on your needs.
