Main Street Birmingham, Inc. is launching the Entrepreneurial Workshop Series, a free eleven workshop curriculum that will walk potential business owners through the process of researching, planning, launching and running a small business. Interested candidates will be able to enter the series at any time.
“With this series we’re formalizing the training and services we’ve been providing entrepreneurs for years,” said Main Street Birmingham Executive Director David Fleming. “Now small business owners and entrepreneurs will have a system they can follow to get started on the right track.” The workshops are being coordinated by Trudy Phillips, a noted small business trainer. Each topic will be presented twice on the east and west sides of Birmingham.
