If you are looking to start your own business, you will need the right tools to succeed. Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area offers a course that can help prepare you for a better job and career.
The Micro-Enterprise Business Development and Training Program helps individuals interested in starting and maintaining their own business take the first step by learning to write a business plan. Through the program, participants learn valuable tips from experienced accountants, bankers, attorneys and other professionals.
“Over the years, our professionals have helped hundreds understand what it takes to start and run a small business,” says LaSandra Wright, Director of Micro-Enterprise and Computer Literacy for the Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area. “Our small classes provide plenty of individualized learning and encouragement. Students may also research business topics in our computer lab. On-site childcare is also available.”
Over the ten-week class, participants will learn about the many aspects that go into planning a new business. Course topics will include managing your business records, financing your business, managing cash flow, pricing your products and services, and more.
“The goals of the Micro-Enterprise Business Development and Training Program are to provide motivated and committed entrepreneurs the opportunity to receive business training, and obtain needed start-up capital and technical assistance,” adds Wright.
