This will be the 24th class for new and growing entrepreneurs.
Sarasota, FL – Over the last fifteen years the City of Sarasota has coordinated the North Sarasota Community Entrepreneur Opportunity (CEO) business course. The City and SCORE work in partnership with CareerSource Suncoast to present an Introduction to Business Development course twice per year.
The program has since then graduated over 400 students who became part-time or full-time entrepreneurs.
This course focuses on the core basics for new and aspiring small business owners. Business consultants and other business experts will teach classes about business planning including market strategies, competitive analysis, financials, and operations and management plans. Through a combination of classroom training and mentoring, participants will have an opportunity to assess their business acumen and determine the strength of their business concept.
The next course is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, March 24. Course content is available on a 24/7 basis to all students; however, students are required to participate in the one night per week session from 6 – 9 p.m. each Tuesday, at CareerSource Suncoast, 3660 N. Washington Blvd., in Sarasota. It is free, open to the public and sponsored by Wells Fargo bank.
Attendance at the first two classes is required to go on to complete the 10-week course. While the course is free, attendance and participation are mandatory.
