Entrepreneurs, even successful ones, often don’t know what they don’t know. While they may be excellent at providing their respective products or services, they may also feel somewhat isolated when it comes to making the many business-related decisions frequently thrown at them. Worse yet, after spending countless hours providing those excellent products and services, the thought of innovating and planning for future growth can seem both daunting and exhausting.

The ImagineDSM™ Entrepreneurship Program through FuseDSM and Bookpress Publishing will equip entrepreneurs and small business managers with tools that can be immediately applied for enhanced outcomes and increased long-term success. In Friday morning sessions spread over six months, participants will be instructed in the areas of:  

• Creativity, Innovation, and Idea Development

• Building Networks and Relationships

• Marketing and Brand Building

• Conflict Resolution and Negotiation

• Financial Management

• Business Planning and effective Time Management

Following the six-month program, cohort participants will stay connected through periodic mentoring meetings led by presenters and Bookpress staff. These meetings will feature discussions designed to help participants deal with and address current challenges along with celebrating individual successes. Participants will learn from each other during these informal meetings and form a foundation of mutual support.

We concluded our first cohort on March 1, 2024.

Sign up now for the second cohort which begins October 4th! At a program cost of $995 (for FuseDSM chamber members - $1,195 for non-members), seats will fill fast. The program begins on October 4th and concludes on March 7th.
