People looking to start their own business may need to add new credentials to their resumes
in order to keep up with industry trends and advances in technology for their new endeavor to succeed. Now, Course Hero Incorporated has announced the launch of 22 full-length courses in entrepreneurship, business and web programming to help aspiring business owners.
"Course Hero recognized that there is a wealth of high quality educational content already available online, but the Internet's lack of structure makes it difficult for a self-motivated individual to learn that material efficiently," Course Hero chief executive officer Andrew Grauer stated. "With Courses, we've built the course infrastructure to organize that content in a way that guides the user through a learning flow, assesses their understanding and rewards their progress."
Course Hero is also offering its top students the opportunities to enter a business plan competition for a chance to win a pitch meeting with an angel capital investor and a $5,000 prize or a job with the company.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 2.5 million jobs were created in the U.S. by new establishments in 2010.
