Come in with an idea, walk out with a business plan.


PreFlight is a 4-Month, in-person program that walks step-by-step with first-time entrepreneurs – from “I have an idea” to “I have a business plan” – empowering you with knowledge and support as you seek to bring your business to life. We call this Phase 1 of the Entrepreneur’s Lifecycle.
