Meet your instructor, Karla Briones

Hi, I'm Karla Briones, experienced award-winning serial entrepreneur and TEDx Speaker. I came to Canada at 18 in a U-Haul truck after a five-day drive from my country, Mexico.

In the last 12 years, I fell in love with business and opened many – which I still own! I've navigated entrepreneurship on my own as an immigrant and made many mistakes that I learned from. Now, I've been named Immigrant Entrepreneur of the Year by Canada's Nation's Capital. I've helped hundreds of entrepreneurs launch, scale, and exit their businesses.

To help out more underrepresented, BIPOC and immigrant entrepreneurs, I decided to put all my experience and knowledge in online courses to help you succeed and scale faster. My commitment is to help you along your business journey and create accessible business training and an encouraging community so you don't have to do this alone.


"Karla is a very good teacher, who’s very knowledgeable about how to develop a business - she teaches with her heart and that is the reason why this course is amazing. This course is truly a treasure for all immigrants that want to be entrepreneurs in Canada."

Carolina V - owner of Spark Auto Repair

"I'm so grateful to Karla for creating such a wonderful course. The lessons are easy to follow, and she is easy to understand. This course managed to put complex IDEAs into simple terms that anyone can understand. All the information is very helpful for us. It's really worth investing in this course."

Seema K - owner of Green Dress

"Karla has helped me from the point where I was struggling with the idea and helped enormously with business positioning. She has referred me to her circle and has introduced me to the various support programs for entrepreneurs through which I was able to set up a website and digital presence. The support and guidance she has provided me from business strategy to positioning to marketing have been invaluable to me, and I can state with confidence that I wouldn't have been able to achieve my goals without her.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is This Program Right For Me?

This program will benefit anyone who wants to open a business but is stuck at the WHAT part. This is also a great program for those with multiple business ideas that are unsure which one to go for. If you already have an idea - this program will help you look at it in a strategic way - backed up with the right research and will help you build an execution plan to get to the next level. And the best part of this program - it is intended to provide information to those seeking it, but also connect like-minded people so you don't have to do it alone.

Do I have to be BIPOC, immigrant or from an underrepresented group to access this course?

Absolutely not! The material in this course applies to anyone regardless of cultural background/abilities/gender/race. We made this course to make it accessible to these underrepresented communities because we believe in empowering those who wouldn't normally have access to this information- but everyone is welcomed!

You pay a one-time fee of $74 CDN and have lifetime access. This price includes all the components listed above. It also gets you online lifespan access to the course assets, member Facebook community and any other new or bonus content that may be added.

Why is it this price? What's the catch?
