Course Description

Coconino County Health & Human Services - Community & Career Services (CCHHS-CCS) partners with Coconino Community College's Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to facilitate our 36-hour, 9-week Internet-based small business plan development training. We utilize Zoom and LivePlan delivery platforms to assist budding entrepreneurs in assessing business idea feasibility while also giving existing business owners the tools required to stabilize and/or grow their small businesses. The objective of the course is to help develop a sound and easily implementable business plan. This plan and the essential business knowledge gained from the course can help you secure needed capital to successfully launch and/or grow the business of your dreams. The class enrollment fee is only $125, and an income-based partial (50%) scholarship may also be available to those who qualify.
