Entrepreneurship and Small Business (ESB) Certifications

Entrepreneurship and Small Business is a certification from Certiport, sponsored by Intuit and the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, that ensures tomorrow’s leaders are prepared with the toolkit they need to get ahead in today’s competitive landscape. Whether you are starting a bakery or launching the next billion-dollar startup, ESB validates your understanding of core business principles, including the essentials needed to launch and maintain a successful business.

Successful completion of this certification will validate the skills and knowledge for those interested in becoming an interprenuer or starting a  profession as your own boss.

Entrepreneur vs Interpreneur

Entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs share similarities in their focus on innovation and creating value, but they operate in different contexts—entrepreneurs typically work independently to establish new ventures, while intrapreneurs operate within existing organizations to drive innovation and positive change.
