The teaching kitchen at Colleton Commercial Kitchen will be the place to be for potential small business entrepreneurs looking for the recipe for success.
The Center for a Better South will take over the teaching kitchen on May 9 to conduct its Entrepreneurial Boot Camp.
“Through the experts at the South Carolina Small Business Development Center, we’re pleased to be able to bring this kind of high quality training to people in the six counties of the Promise Zone,” said Center President Andy Brack. “If you have a hobby that you want to turn into a business, or want to brush up on business basics to make your existing small business work better, this free class may be just the thing for you.”
The training program will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be taught by Earl Gregorich, senior business counselor with the South Carolina Small Business Development Centers. An entrepreneur for more than 20 years, he recently received the Small Business Administration’s SBDC Excellence and Innovation Award.
In the morning session, Gregorich will outline simple steps to start a business and discuss financial analysis of business ideas, options for business financing and give an overview of crafting a business plan. In the afternoon session, he will review sales and marketing tools, cash flow management, the global marketplace and business-related technologies.
Lunch will be provided. Those sign up to attend but don’t show up will be billed for lunch. Registration is limited to 20 people.
