The Center for a Better South periodically offers entrepreneurial and capacity-building training classes to provide people who live in the S.C. Promise Zone to improve skill sets. See rules and limitations below.
NOTE: If any classes your are interested in are filled, we encourage you to register so that you can be placed on a waiting list in case there are vacancies. Additionally, those who are on the waiting list will get the first chance to sign up for future classes.
The training by the S.C. Small Business Development Center’s Earl Gregorich is for people who want to start for-profit businesses. It also may be helpful to people who want to start nonprofit organizations as it will focus on business basics.
There is no cost to attend our courses. But to attend, you must register, above, through EventBrite. Each class is limited in the number of participants it can have.
Trainings offered by the Center are provided through a Rural Business Development Grant awarded in 2016 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The Center for a Better South was a leading driver of the area’s combined effort to apply for and be successful in winning the federal designation for the region to be a Promise Zone. You can get updates on the Promise Zone at its website: http://www.SCPromiseZone.org.
