You’ve got a great product, but how do you get your customers to buy?
BET 430 Sales Fundamentals, the latest addition to the Conrad Centre’s slate of undergraduate entrepreneurship courses, will empower students to tackle this question head-on. All ventures, from non-profits to startups to mature businesses, need sales to survive. BET 430 takes a thorough look at the process and structure of sales, from a high-level understanding of the sales cycle, to the nitty gritty details of what to say when.
At the end of every term, Enterprise Co-op students showcase their ventures through 90-second videos in the Product Video Showcase. This term, five students were awarded $1,000 each for their submissions.
E Co-op is open to students from all faculties with any type of business concept: no-tech, low-tech, high-tech, service, consulting and more. This term's Product Video Showcase winners reflect that diversity. Check out their winning entries!
