The orientation and Business Basics Course will continue as planned with a new virtual format. The virtual orientation on April 9 also has a new time from 6:00-7:00 pm. Everyone registered will receive instructions how to participate.
Offered in partnership with the City of Bellevue, this course is open to City of Bellevue residents only. Residents of other cities are invited to register for Ventures courses that are open to all. (WE ARE CURRENTLY PLANNING TO HOLD THIS IN PERSON — THIS MAY CHANGE AND WE WILL UPDATE THIS PAGE AND NOTIFY ALL REGISTERED ATTENDEES IF SO)
You are welcome to print and complete the Business Basics Course application at home to bring to the Orientation. Paper applications will be available at Orientation. Space is limited – attendance at Orientation does not guarantee acceptance into the Business Basics Course.
