Online small business classes

An educational toolkit for successful business ownership

The eL3 Hub training programs are developed by successful business owners. The classes are formatted and designed by e-learning educators and trainers, and incorporate business community resources available through non-profit, state, and federal agencies. For over five years, this program has been successfully used by community organizations and educational institutions to teach entrepreneurs and small business owners how to design a viable business model and strategy.

This is business, education and government all working together.

Though the program our students receive all the tools necessary to:

  • Develop a detailed strategy and plan of action for their business
  • Complete a comprehensive business plan to submit to lending institutions or to guide the business

The curriculum uses innovative business modeling techniques incorporated into a 21st century e-learning platform that, when partnered with an online classroom and community environment, creates an interactive learning experience that sparks enthusiasm, creative thinking and confidence.

Our Ethos

At eL3 Hub, our educational programs are the trunk and branches of a tree. The trunk and branches must be strong to weather high winds and torrential rainstorms. If they are weak or diseased, the tree will fall over in a breeze. We offer an intensive, comprehensive course that teaches you to think like a business owner and develop a financially viable business model. You create and test the plan before you invest time, money, and resources. 


The branches grow from our many specialized courses, which include Start-Up Basics, Marketing, Accounting, and others, as well as our ever-expanding catalog of new courses to support our growing community. eL3 is a dynamic program that grows along with our students.

Our history

Why did we create eL3 Hub?

Frankly, we got tired of seeing promising businesses fail from the same mistakes, time and time again. We knew we had information that entrepreneurs could use to avoid losing their businesses, but we were limited by the number of people we could consult with individually, and their proximity to our classrooms or offices.

With the recent expansion of online global video
communication options and technology, we now have
the ability to bring our program to more people in
more places and still maintain the one on one support that we know works.  

Are you ready to move your small business to the next level?
