The New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII) has announced its upcoming Brick City Entrepreneurship Training Program.

Training Sessions

Entrepreneurs will have access to asynchronous learning modules with specific activities tied to each. These modules have been created specifically for the Brick City Program.
