Great News!  Starting in late 2020, Detroit at Work is piloting an Entrepreneurship Training Academy for aspiring entrepreneurs to learn more about what it takes to start, operate, and maintain a small business, whether you’re interested in Amazon or have your own idea! 

Detroit at Work’s Entrepreneurship Training Academy will position you to understand the basics of starting your own business, and/or prepare you to apply to become an Amazon Delivery Service Partner. 

Want to Understand the Core Concepts of Starting a Business?  The Detroit at Work Entrepreneurship Academy offers two options. Take one or both courses, depending on your interests!  We recommend both courses for aspiring Amazon Service Delivery Partners.

Amazon Delivery Service Partner Business Basics

While it isn’t required, we recommend taking Own Your Own Business 101 so you’ll be primed for our Amazon Delivery Service Partner (DSP) readiness training – Amazon Partner Business Basics.
