The inuagural class is off to a successful start and will continue for ten weeks on Tuesday mornings at Innovations. City of Chandler Economic Development Director Christine MacKay kicked off the class and commended Maricopa SBDC Technology Coordinator Sanjay Dhole and the SBDC for being leaders in providing this training for the City of Chandler and the larger community.
The TechEDge curriculum consists of ten modules, each presented by Subject Matter Experts, and including technology readiness, intellectual property protection, corporate structure, business model development, marketing, business plan development, project management, systems and logistics, finding strategic partners, financial management, operations and risk management, human resources and capital formation.
Marni Patterson has been working under contract for the SBDC to develop the curriculum, coordinate the speakers, and help Sanjay with co-facilitation. She has been a great resource to add to our team, and we appreciate her expertise. Congratulations to everyone involved for a successful launch!
