    Avista Center Bldg. 1, Rm R101


    SCC's Start Up Academy and Launch Lab at the Avista Center offers you multiple ways to get the entrepreneurial education you need to start or grow your business. Our curriculum is designed to get you started and not just study theory.

    The entrepreneurship certificate program welcomes students from many backgrounds and areas of study. Students participate in a two-quarter business experience where they create a business from the ground up. Students are guided through the experience by your college instructors, as well as by local business and community leaders.

    The Start Up Academy also offers several nonacademic programs for individuals who would like to start or grow a business. These programs include the Entrepreneurship Citation, the Entrepreneurship Boot Camp, the Launch Lab and various entrepreneurial workshops.
