Business Trainings

Once a year, AEDC holds its 60-hour Entrepreneurship Assistance Center (EAC) Small Business Institute. This comprehensive hands-on training course is specifically designed for new and existing business owners to learn what it takes to give their business ideas the best chance to succeed.

Topics covered include:

  • Planning and researching your business idea
  • Marketing analysis, strategies and implementation
  • Financial record-keeping
  • Understanding and using cash flow projections
  • Financing your business
  • Negotiating with partners, clients and customers, and more

The classes blend classroom instruction with individualized training, as well as lectures by prominent business experts followed by question-and-answer sessions. Our goal is for class participants to complete a fully vetted professional business plan by the end of the course – which is required for any business seeking financing to start or grow their business – and to provide direct access to local commercial funding sources.
