The fulfilling the vision entrepreneurship program was launched on
February 1, 2000 as a group of monthly entrepreneur training seminars that were held at various hotels throughout the state of Illinois. These seminars were taught by the founder, Siri Hibbler, a serial entrepreneur, trainer, executive coach, chief marketing executive and motivational speaker.
Today, these educational seminars have evolved into a full 10-week class curriculum, where aspiring and existing entrepreneurs are taught how to write a full business plan that includes financial analysis, P&L’s, metrics, customer demographics, ratios, milestones and accessing capital. Students are also taught how the creative process works in entrepreneurship as well as the implementation of “disruptive technologies” and innovation. Students will have the chance to meet current Multimillionaire Entrepreneurs, obtain mentors and coaches to help them grow successful companies. After completion of the class, graduates will have a chance to obtain start-up or expansion capital for their business via pitch contests and scholarships.
