About Build Basics:

Our core 8-week business and project planning class is designed for aspiring and established entrepreneurs. Classes are taught by local experts and cover all the basics of starting a business – from licensing to financial literacy, market research to cash flow and more. You’ll leave the class with a completed business plan, a cohort of fellow entrepreneurs in Ferndale, and the knowledge and confidence to take your idea to the next level. Learn more about our class curriculum & why Build Basics is right for you!

Who can apply?
Any current Ferndale area business owner looking for support, advice, camaraderie, and accountability from fellow Ferndale area business owners.


About GROW Peer Roundtables:

Build Institute’s GROW Peer Roundtable FERNDALE, presented in partnership with the city of Ferndale, is a forum for second-stage business owners located in Ferndale to explore the key issue of growth. Membership in GROW connects members to an expanding and diverse group of business leaders and serial entrepreneurs.

How does it work?
Twice a month Roundtable members meet with an advisory group of 5 – 10 non-competing small business owners in a confidential setting. Meetings are facilitated by a third-party  advisor to ensure that all members have equal floor time and voice in getting help with key business decisions.

Each Roundtable member brings a unique perspective, ideas, advice and resources to the table with no hidden agendas.

In addition, periodically, subject matter experts are invited to to help members take a deep dive into specific areas of interest.

Who can apply?
Any current Ferndale area business owner looking for support, advice, camaraderie, and accountability from fellow Ferndale area business owners.

GROW Peer Roundtable FERNDALE will return in the fall!  Sign up to be on early registration mailing list here.
