Alchemist microenterprise academy (AMA)
Alchemist Microenterprise Academy is a 12-week business training course. AMA is designed to make sense of the confusing aspects of starting a food business. We are currently taking applications for the next AMA cohort which will begin on September 13. We are having four AMA Information Sessions live-on-Zoom every Tuesday from 6-7pm between July 26 and August 16. We also have the option to watch the info session in a recorded, on-demand format. These information Sessions explain about the program and how to apply. It is mandatory to attend either a Live-on-Zoom Info Session or complete the on-demanda AMA Info Session in order to apply for the program. Questions about the program can be directed to email@example.com.
