Do you have an idea for a small business or startup, but don’t know where to start? Explore your business idea and get your business off the ground. Join Uptima Business Bootcamp’s 12-week Launching a Business course. Program runs in Oakland and San Francisco from September-December.

In our Launching a Business course, we guide you through a hands-on process of clarifying the business idea and market, testing the solution, getting feedback and laying the foundation for the business to thrive.
