Technology-based Entrepreneurship Training

Entrepreneurship training can be a challenge. Some people start their business not knowing what they don’t know. Some need to learn more to grow their business and don’t have or don’t take the time to learn how to sustain it. Economic development professionals are always looking for better ways to develop small business and response to traditional classes have been lukewarm. This looks like a great program offered in Canada for educating entrepreneurs. SBA (U.S. Small Business Administration) offers a lot of on-line small business training – free yes, but without the structure and interactive instructor support. However, if you need questions answered or other direction, check out for local, state, and regional business assistance.
