We will be giving an instructional course in this series in October:
The Small Business Institute, developed by Pitt-Bradford’s Business Resource Center and the Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce, was designed to address topics that are critical to the success of today’s small business. Small-business owners and entrepreneurs often wear many different “hats,” and these workshops will help to tackle real-world issues such as management, finances, human resources, Internet usage, marketing, and business writing. Complete all six workshops in the series and receive a certificate of achievement. In addition to the Business Resource Center and the Bradford Chamber of Commerce, this series is co-sponsored by Clarion University SBDC.
Each session will be held from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. in the Outreach Services Classroom, 2nd floor Seneca Building, Bradford, PA
$25 for each session if you register separately
$125 for the entire six-week series$100 for Chamber members when they register for the entire series
