Business Prep (BRC)

March 30 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Duration: Once a week for 10 weeks

This 10- week course provides an overview of target market analysis, fundamental business operations, and basic business finance principles. You will develop foundational business skills and complete a basic business plan, outlining your business goals and strategies to achieve them.

This course will be taught by Beth Houtrow. She has over 15 years of experience supporting nonprofits, tech companies, and small businesses from launch to scale. Her expertise is in designing systems to create process efficiencies. Or more simply – she’s an expert at getting businesses organized and flowing smoothly. Whether you are just getting started or have been in business for years, she can help you identify and implement low-cost software solutions to make your business more efficient. Her primary area of focus is CRM platforms (customer databases), but she is also experienced in implementing software for marketing, accounting, people management, project management, and more. In coordination with system creation, Beth helps clients design metrics to measure the effectiveness of their business operations and strategies.


There is a new way to register! You can now register using your client profile. By setting up a client profile, you will not have to fill out the same personal information for each workshop you register for, making it faster and easier in the long run! 

a)  If you already have a Client Portal Profile, click the Register button below.

  • In the Client Portal, go to the Calendar tab (top left) and select Business Prep (3/30/22), click enroll, answer the questions, and submit! You will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link.

b) If you don’t have a Client Portal profile, create one at this link. Make sure to use the same email address you have used in the past with Renaissance. You may change it later, but this allows our system to recognize you. 

If you already have an intake form on file, you’ll see the Calendar tab in the top left.

If you do not, you will need to fill one out before you can see the Calendar tab. It may also ask you to update your information.  The user interface isn’t perfect, so make sure to scroll up and keep clicking “Continue” or “Sign” in order to complete the forms. If you have any problem during this, please contact Amanda Anthony at amanda@rencenter.org.

Once the Calendar tab is visible, you can register by going to your profile’s calendar tab and selecting Business Prep (3/30/22), hit enroll, answer the questions and submit! You will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link.

If you have any questions about the class or you have problems with creating a client profile, please do not hesitate to email amanda@rencenter.org!
