Tish Williams, executive director of the Hancock Chamber & Community Development Foundation, announced that small businesses will now have access to free technical assistance workshops to help them grow and expand their businesses.
"The engine of job creation is small businesses, which make up 99 percent of all employers ---three quarters of all net jobs," said Williams. "There is a need to fuel that engine by giving entrepreneurs and companies the support they need to re-open their doors, recover, expand and hire more workers."
The first in a series of monthly workshops will be held on Monday, February 6th from 6-8:30pm at the Hancock Chamber Office at 111 Court Street in Bay St. Louis. This series of monthly workshops is part of a new initiative by the Hancock Chamber and Community Development Foundation to establish a Business Resource Center to provide technical assistance to businesses.
Led by incoming Chamber President Judith Redshaw, the first session will provide information on the "nuts and bolts of organizing a business." "This session will provide useful tools to entrepreneurs who are planning to start or even expand a small business," said Redshaw.
A new poll funded by the Kaufmann Foundation supports this theory that entrepreneurial support is one of the keys to positioning communities for economic success in tough times.
"With the economy struggling to get back on track, the country and the county need bright new ideas now more than ever," said Redshaw. "We want to encourage and support entrepreneurs of all ages," she said.
It is important to note that the workshops are open to the first 20 who register. Those interested can register for one class or the entire series, which is set to run on the first Monday of each month through June. The entire series of workshops is as follows:
Nuts & Bolts of Organizing a Business, Mon., Feb. 6, 6-8:30pm
Preparing a Business Plan, Mon., March 5, 6-8:30pm
Financing the Enterprise, Mon., April 2, 6-8:30pm
The Legalities Associated with a Business, Mon., May 7, 6-8:30pm
Marketing On a Shoestring, Mon., June 4, 6-8:30pm
New Dates: Sat., Feb. 18, March 3, April 14, May 12, June 19, 9-11:30 am
These monthly workshops are an initiative of the Business Resource Center, a new Division of the Hancock Chamber. The Business Resource Center is supported by the City of Bay St. Louis, the Mississippi Small Business Development Center, the U. S. Department of Commerce/Economic Development Administration, and Chambers across the Mississippi Coast.
Classes are open to all businesses and individuals who are considering starting a business. For more information, call the Hancock Chamber at 228-467-9048 or email email@example.com.
