Entrepreneurship Workshops in Hickman County

There was enough interest in the workshop series on starting a business and becoming an entreprenuer that it is in the works! The first of eight sessions has been tentatively scheduled to begin at 6:00pm on Tuesday, February 10th in the training/conference room at the Career Center (and the Hickman County Economic & Community Development Association office). Columbia State Community College is organizing the series and South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance is covering most of the cost of the program. The only cost to the participant is $25 to cover part of the cost of the book.

Whether you already have a business and need a boost, already have an idea and are ready to start your business, or just think it might be for you and want to begin the exploration, contact us for more information.
