The Next Step will be your guide, taking you step-by-step through the process from raw idea to operational startup.

Based on the book of the same name, author Michael "Luni" Libes will guide you step by step through the process of planning and executing your business.

Limited tickets are available for single workshops. Attendees will get far more out of the workshops by attending all five weeks.
