Baylor University's FastTrac program for entrepreneurs is accepting applications for fall courses, beginning in September.

FastTrac is a tested, comprehensive program that provides entrepreneurs with the necessary business insights, leadership skills and professional networking connections to create a new business or expand an existing one.

FastTrac has two programs: "FastTrac NewVenture" for aspiring entrepreneurs with a business idea who wish to test the feasibility of their concept, and "FastTrac Planning" for existing entrepreneurs and owners of small businesses who want to develop a viable plan for growth and blueprint for success.

Each FastTrac course will allow participants to prepare their own professional operational, marketing and business plan, as they move their ventures to reality or new levels of growth.

Sessions for the nine-week FastTrac NewVenture program will begin Sept. 2. The classes will be held from 6 to 9:30 p.m. each Tuesday at the Hankamer School of Business on the Baylor campus. FastTrac Planning sessions will be held from 6 to 9:30 p.m. each Tuesday for 11 weeks, also at the business school.

FastTrac is co-sponsored by the Baylor Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, the City of Waco and the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce. The Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership Inc. at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Waco Foundation are special benefactors to the FastTrac program.

For registration information or to request an application, call Mary Abrahams in the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at (254) 710-4157. Class size is limited.
