If your college's entrepreneurship program isn't already supporting direct selling entrepreneurs, you're missing an important market...and not a small one! Did you know that there are over 16 million direct selling entrepreneurs in the United States? On February 27th, from 2 - 3 pm Eastern, NACCE is co-hosting a webinar with our good friends at the Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF). During this webinar, we'll present an overview of the Direct Selling Entrepreneur Program (DSEP) curriculum, a 30-hour, non-credit program that was co-created by NACCE and DSEF.
So why should your program support direct selling entrepreneurs using the DSEP curriculum? Well, here are three reasons to start:
- Direct sellers are independent contractors who operate
their own entrepreneurial venture with some of the lowest barriers to entry of
any business type. For
colleges/entrepreneurship centers, this means quick business starts &
broader diversity of entrepreneurs in your programs.
- The cost of the materials includes the
instructor’s guide, marketing and PR support, and is extremely
reasonable- less than $30 per student workbook.
- The curriculum is flexible, and can be adapted by colleges in different ways to suit the needs of local direct selling entrepreneurs, as you'll discover during the webinar.
Registration will open the week of February 3rd -- look for information in next week's e-news and in the Upcoming Events section of the website!
