BBCetc offers training classes and webinars on a variety of topics relevant to technology companies and entrepreneurs. These classes can be offered under the auspices of a client or partner organization, or may be scheduled regionally and open to the community. BBCetc consultants also participate on panels and as speakers at conferences and workshops around the country.
The following list of onsite training, short programs and webinars can be tailored for the interests and time available and combined with brief one-on-one consultations. For further information, contact Jayne Berkaw at firstname.lastname@example.org / 734-930-9741.
The following programs generally run for approximately one-and-a-half to two hours, making them ideal choices for Lunch & Learn events, break-out sessions, breakfast/lunch meetings, etc.
Webinars are designed to introduce, complement or enhance BBCetc’s on-site training courses, though they also can be used independently to help facilitate the development of competitive SBIR/STTR proposals. Each webinar lasts approximately one hour and covers a specific aspect of the SBIR/STTR process.
