About the Training Academy

The Training Academy (formally known as the Training Institute), is a two-day, live training program that provides entrepreneur-serving professionals with the latest information, tools, and resources to enhance and improve the daily operations of their entrepreneurial program offerings. The Training Academy features live versions of four of InBIA’s signature courses from the NewCo Academy and Specialty Course Catalogues. The NewCo Academy provides participants with the ability to facilitate entrepreneur-facing boot camps or workshops; these courses provide turn-key programming solutions for you to use as a resource for your startup founders and community. 

While the majority of InBIA’s curriculum is online, we’re bringing these particular courses back to a live setting since these topics are even more valuable when taken with peers for collaboration and peer-to-peer learning.
