You will begin by knowing the trajectory of Enrique Rivera and his business experience.

Next, you will learn to define the objectives and values of your brand and you will develop a business plan, two key aspects before starting any type of creative business (agency, design studio, online store, personal brand, etc.)

Next, Enrique will guide you when selecting the most appropriate legal personality for your project and assess some decisions prior to its launch: financing, the hiring of an agency and the rental of a space or work space.

Later, you will tackle important accounting issues such as forecasting of expenses and income, payment of taxes and management of suppliers and human resources of the company (hiring of personnel, payroll, rights and duties, etc.). You will also learn to mark an appropriate price for the products or services you offer and define your corporate identity.

Once you have seen the most theoretical aspects of management, you will go on to develop the processes to execute a project effectively. For this, Enrique will give you some recommendations on negotiation, how to prepare budgets and the types of contracts that exist when closing an order or a sale.

Finally, you will learn how to develop a procedure for quality control and evaluation of the processes of your study to continue improving day by day, and get you to devote more time to the creative part than to the management.

What is this course's project?

You will make a business plan quickly and easily using the "canvas model" and you will define the price of your three star products or services.
