The Clayton State University Small Business Development Center’s (SBDC) special series of five classes targeted to small business owners who are ready for growth has already outgrown the Clayton State – Fayette instructional site.
As a result, GrowSmart, which starts on July 23 and runs through Aug. 19, will now be held at Dolce Atlanta-Peachtree, located at 201 Aberdeen Pkwy., in PeachtreeCity.
GrowSmart gives the small business owner tools and strategies to reach their goals. At a cost of $895 per person, small business owners/managers will now attend the GrowSmart series at Dolce-Atlanta Peachtree, instead of ClaytonState – Fayette. There are a limited number of $500 scholarships for those who apply early.
The program is designed for leaders of companies with: at least two years of successful operation; annual revenues of $200,000 or more; the opportunity and desire to grow; and the opportunity to make lasting contacts.
The 35 hours of class time cover all areas of business operation. Among the highlights are: evaluating your business, competition, and target markets; hands-on, interactive program promoting sharing of best practices; expert speakers adding insights to the topic of the day; step-by-step development of company strategies for growth; and, combined with long term one-on-one consulting with SBDC professionals, attendees will learn to apply course principles and build a business for today's challenging times.
Each daily class runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Tuesday, July 23 class is “Planning for Growth,” Tuesday, July 30, “Marketing Research & Planning,” Tuesday, Aug. 6, “Leadership & Management,” Tuesday, Aug. 13, “Financial Analysis & Tools,” and Monday, Aug. 19, “Operations & Implementation.”
