Legal Structures, Licensing & Personal Budget
Personal Credit, Start-up Costs & Overhead

Sales and Profit Goals & Cash Flow

How Much Does it Cost?
In an effort to provide affordable access to resources, class fees are determined on a sliding scale ranging from $100 – $500.
Valued at over $1000, our business education classes could easily carry a very hefty price tag. However, as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the support of neighborhood entrepreneurs, we make our programming as accessible as possible. Build Institute is “for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs” and we practice what we preach as we continue to innovate our model.
