Entrepreneurship and Small Business

Are you an entrepreneur looking for ways to sustain or grow your business? Set yourself up for success with the right information, tools, and guidance to navigate the small business environment here in the Twin Cities—or anywhere in the country!

This affordable, convenient, practical program will help you:

  • Improve your basic business skills
  • Understand what’s needed to improve your financial performance
  • Identify and capture a greater share of your market
  • Communicate effectively to get what you need and want
  • Work effectively with other entrepreneurial resources or consultants

Whether you’re a new entrepreneur or an experienced one, you may face unique challenges in starting and running a business. There are many community resources available but, in order to take full advantage of them, you’ll want to equip yourself with the general business knowledge, math skills, and writing skills needed to develop your business plan.

Earning an Entrepreneurship Communities of Color (ECC) Certificate will fill the gaps in your current skills and ensure you have the tools to take the next steps in growing your business. Our convenient evening sessions meet every week; each is geared toward preparing you for entrepreneurial success.
