Upstart University, we know that things like flexibility, access, and ease-of-use are important to you because let’s face it – you’re a busy person! So, here’s how it works…
- At Upstart University, all courses are optional, so you can take only the ones you need or want.
- Take courses in any order: You're free to start on any course, at any time, in any order. Want to take several at once? Go for it! A clear path when you need it: If you're completely new to farming or entrepreneurship, you might not know where to start or how to proceed.
- If you need a little guidance, we provide an organized checklist and course list to help you proceed from the easiest to hardest topics, and in the order in which you will need to know them while starting your farm. View full course list
- Earn certificates: Trying to get a loan or an investor? Are you required to show proof of mentorship or training? Or just want something to be proud of and hang on the wall? You'll receive a printable Certificate of Completion for each course you complete.
- Complete real business documents: By the end of just two courses, you'll already have a completed mission statement and business plan. And that's just the start!
- Start an actual farm: Upstart University students are encouraged to get physical practice and learn experientially early-on, making their real greenhouses and indoor growing operations a reality, faster.
- Obtain customers & sales contracts: Through proven, farm-specific marketing and sales training, you'll gain the know-how and confidence to go out and secure sales contracts and lifetime customers.
- Anytime access: Your coursework is accessible 24/7 so it's ready for you whether you've got 5 minutes or 5 hours. There is no requirement to complete courses at any time or by any date.
- Access from anywhere: Courses are mobile-accessible, and you can even download lesson audio to learn on-the-go!
