Micro-enterprise classes begin Tuesday
Learn how to write a business plan
The Institute on Urban Policy and Commerce at Florida A&M University through the Small Business Development Center announces the start of its weekly Micro-Enterprise classes at Bethel AME Church, 501 W. Orange Avenue starting Tuesday, August 14 at 6 pm.
The classes will meet on consecutive Tuesdays for six to eight weeks. They are designed to give those who are interested in self-employment and starting their own business an opportunity to receive instruction on the creation of a business plan.
Those who qualify and complete the business plan are eligible to then apply for a micro-loan of up to $15,000 to start their business. The class is for those who are interested in starting storefront or home-based businesses in the historic communities of Frenchtown, Apalachee Ridge, Springfield, Griffin Heights, Bond or Southside Tallahassee.
The program is sponsored in part by a federal grant received from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and a grant administered jointly by Florida A&M University and Florida State University.
