The SIR Business Institute is the newly created entrepreneurial business symposium for early career IRs, IR private practice owners and practice administrators. The 1-day educational offering will allow through the implementation of a process-based approach for owners to set up/expand their practices. 

Program objectives

Upon completion of this course, an attendee should be able to:
  • Develop an entrepreneurial approach to a current business model.
