Why UpStart?

It takes more than a good idea to start a successful business. Issues like accounting, financing and marketing may seem overwhelming, and it can be difficult to network and find investors. WARF's free UpStart program can help.

UpStart:
  • Connects you with area professionals and other aspiring entrepreneurs
  • Helps you gain the skills you need to launch your business
  • Works with you to establish strategic goals and identify next steps
 



Whatever your background, UpStart welcomes you

People with interests ranging from farming to real estate, personal services, mobile apps and more have benefited from WARF's UpStart program.

Each cohort includes motivated individuals from diverse professional and educational backgrounds. Participants learn from each other and share their own ideas and experiences.
