Basic Business Empowerment
BBE GraduateWhat Is Available
Basic Business Empowerment (BBE) is a business development plan training program for Coconino County residents. Coconino County does not discriminate on race, age, sex, national origin, religion, color, sexual preference, or disability.

Starting a Business
It has been estimated that over 70 percent of Americans have considered starting their own business at one time or another, but most have not because they do not know how. In the U.S. entrepreneurs make up about 10 percent of the population. Interestingly, two-thirds of them had a parent who owned a business. Rather than inheriting this ability, they likely were introduced to entrepreneurship over the dinner table, and learned and gained confidence from their more knowledgeable and experienced family members. BBE provides a similar opportunity for knowledge transfer to you from training facilitators and guest speakers who have successful small business experience.

Small Businesses
Small businesses are the primary source of wealth and job creation in America. Coconino County Community Services (CCCS), a Community Action Agency, launched BBE in spring 2007 to help those with a business idea to spur community economic vitality. The program now offers business feasibility plan development training utilizing PitchThenPlan and SmallBizU resources to help you quickly translate your business idea into a viable business plan. The CCCS-BBE program partners with the Small Business Development Center providing even more resources and learning opportunity for its training participants.  

Coconino County residents interested in BBE training should complete an application as soon as possible since our classroom based training is limited to 12-participants.
