|Ready to start a business?|
The Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce is registering participants for its Entrepreneur Class, which starts on Feb. 18.
The six-week Entrepreneurial Academy is designed to assist those who want to start a business but are unsure where to begin. Each instructor in the program is an experienced entrepreneur in his or her field of business.
Instructors cover topics such as: the legalities of starting a business; accounting and bookkeeping; legal issues and ethics; managing revenues; marketing your business; retirement planning for small businesses; business liability insurance; and technology resources.
“This is the only program like this offered by any Chamber of Commerce in Georgia and unique from other programs offered in the area because the instructors are local business leaders who make their living doing what they teach,” said Fred Boscarino, president/CEO of the Chamber.
The academy has drawn participants from Stockbridge, College Park, Stone Mountain, Forest Park, Lithonia, Decatur and even McDonough.
Classes are held at the Parker Road Government Building. Classes are on Mondays, 6 – 9 p.m., for six weeks. The academy costs $150. The fee includes class materials, a light supper before each class and a graduation dinner. For more information or to register, call 770-483-7049.
