Ann Arbor SPARK has launched a new educational series, Accelerating Company Excellence (ACE). ACE is designed to help small business owners learn new skills and reinforce best practices by learning from subject matter experts in finance, sales, marketing, and accounting.
Every startup starts small and almost all must displace an established alternative. How do you do this? This class explores concepts that help you with this complex, but essential task. There are a number of concepts that must be understood and implemented in order to “Slay a Market Goliath” or the established competitor or alternative. Unless you understand and master them, you will remain the little guy.
