A small group of consultants in the Ann Arbor area noticed a growing need for entrepreneurial expertise, so they decided to do something about it. They launched Learning to be Great six months ago.
"We saw a need for a place for people to get good tools, like survey instruments -- the types of things we use as consultants." says Stephen Gill, co-founder of Learning to be Great
The website offers a number of those tools to its members in downloadable form, such as PDFs or software. The Ann Arbor-based company and its team of four people launched a Beta version last fall and is in the process of making its name in the local consulting business.
Learning to be Great offers its services to customers through memberships, which give them the opportunity to purchase the company's wealth of expertise. It also plans to offer consulting services and eventually advertising and marketing opportunities.
"Most of the revenue will come from the sales of the tools and memberships," Gill says.
