FastTrac is accepting applications for fall courses to begin Sept. 5 at Baylor University.

FastTrac is a unique, hands-on business development program designed to help business owners create or grow their companies wisely, successfully and profitably. It provides training in the practical business management skills used by leading entrepreneurial firms today.

FastTrac has two programs: FastTrac NewVenture and FastTrac GrowthVenture.

FastTrac NewVenture emphasizes the development of a business plan for a start-up venture. This is the first step in giving an entrepreneur the opportunity to assess their ideas and their own personal abilities as entrepreneurs.

FastTrac GrowthVenture is for the business owner focusing on taking the company to new levels of growth and expanding business operations. Entrepreneurs sharpen their strategic thinking skills as they plan for growth and build sustainable businesses. A well thought-out and researched business plan is an optional outcome of the program.

Each intensive course is a tested, comprehensive and dynamic, educationally-based program from which participants will walk away with their own professional operational, marketing and business plans.

Nationally acclaimed, FastTrac was created by entrepreneurs in collaboration with leading business instructors from across the country. More than 165,000 participants have completed FastTrac classes in the United States since 1993.

Sessions for FastTrac NewVenture and FastTrac GrowthVenture will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. each Tuesday for eleven weeks at the Hankamer School of Business on the Baylor campus beginning Sept. 5.

FastTrac is co-sponsored by the Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship at Baylor, the City of Waco, the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce and the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership Inc. at the Ewing Marion Foundation.

For registration information or to request an application, call the Baugh Center, (254) 710-4157. Seating is limited.
