Can I really start a business with less than $1,000?

Yes, and we don’t just say that, we’ve done it. The fact is, the majority of businesses in the U.S. are self-funded. Whether you are starting with $10 or $1,000,000, we will teach you how to take a business idea and build it to reach your end goal.

What’s in it for you?

The satisfaction of helping others. We do not financially benefit from Starter U in any way, and at no point will we try to sell you something. Our founder, Brian Hamilton, has been an entrepreneur all his life. He established the foundation to share what he has learned and to create a community of like-minded entrepreneurs who want to help anyone who has an idea and wants to turn it into a business.
