The Small Business Administration and Trump University have teamed up to launch a free online training course for entrepreneurs looking to start a business with limited resources, organizers said Monday.

How to Start a Business on a Shoestring Budget will address several strategies for launching a new business, including market research and business branding on a budget. Participants, who can complete the course at their own pace, will be able to interact with experts guiding them through all stages of business planning and execution. They will also learn how to get by with little equity financing from banks and investors, organizers said. The course is available through the SBA's Small Business Training Network at, under the "Training" icon.
