Crown Launches the Future of Innovative and Affordable Online Business Education and Mentoring

"Our goal in collaborating with Crown is to deliver the best resources, presenting time-tested principles to inspire, inform, and instruct entrepreneurs and business owners through a Biblical lens," said Wade Myers, founder of the Venture Academy.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Crown President Robert Dickie III announced an innovative partnership between Crown and the Venture Academy's founder, entrepreneur and small business advisor, Wade Myers. Together they launched www.Crownbiz.com to educate and serve business leaders and entrepreneurs around the globe. 

"For professionals considering continuing education, this innovative program is a game changer. Even better, it doesn't burden the entrepreneur or small business owner with crushing educational debt," said Dickie. "Professionals can raise their expectations for the future without lowering their cost of living and really achieve a New Year's Resolution to exchange a dead-end job for a meaningful business opportunity."

An asset for attendees will be the real-world experience Myers brings to the table, noted Dickie. "Wade's role in advising hundreds of entrepreneurs and starting more than twenty companies gives him the right combination of vision and experience as we work to help people build their own futures," said Dickie. "Wade's Harvard MBA training and credentials have been put to the test and passed with flying colors in real-world settings."

The Crown Venture Academy covers Introduction to Entrepreneurship, Sales and Marketing, Finance and Accounting, Technology, Operations, Service Management, Human Resources, Business Communications, Legal, and a very detailed Venture Analysis to score existing or planned business ventures. 

This unique Crown business program also combines the theoretical with the practical through mentoring via Crown's new and growing global network of business leaders and consultants known as Crown Business Advisors.

Myers observed: "The content includes nearly 200 videos of key business processes and principles as well as thirteen Harvard Business School case discussions. The wisdom on tap for business owners comes from the best MBA training, the best management consulting frameworks, and hands-on practical experiences that are not taught in any MBA program. There is also a real focus on what is needed for a successful venture from both a business and Biblical perspective."

Those signing up will have access to more than 32 hours of Ivy League-quality online video instruction at a very reasonable cost of only $150. The site also includes a searchable index to locate and contact Crown Business Advisors that are available for mentoring
