“I was really fired up about this idea but I had no idea where to begin. Through the Discover Cohort, I gained an understanding of business structure – I learned how to take this slowly forming idea through specific planning steps. I walked out of those classes every day with about ten times more confidence in myself than I’d had when I walked in.”
