Small Biz Training Comes to Clintonville

Small Biz Training Comes to Clintonville

Sep 12, 2019

The Venture Center at Fox Valley Technical College will hold its popular small business training series, E-seed Express, in Clintonville for the first time ever. In partnership with the Clintonville Chamber of Commerce, a kickoff event is scheduled for Saturday, September 28, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at FVTC’s Clintonville Regional Center, 525 S. Main Street, as a precursor to the eight-week training opportunity.

Based on the success of E-seed in Waupaca in recent years, the Venture Center is extending its curriculum into the Clintonville region. “E-seed is a dynamic experience for aspiring entrepreneurs or established business owners looking to improve or grow their enterprises,” says Amy Pietsch, Venter Center director. “Rural start-ups and small business play an integral role in today’s global markets.”

Trainees will learn from the national train-the-trainer program how to develop a business plan while exploring concepts related to idea feasibility, industry and competitive analyses, financing, marketing, and more. In addition, they will gain insight and access to a relevant network of expert entrepreneurs and internationally-recognized leaders in entrepreneur education.  

After the September 28 kickoff, the training session meets on Wednesdays beginning October 2 through November 20 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. The fee is $299 per person and includes course materials. Grant funding is available on behalf of Waupaca County to offset costs. To learn more or to register, call 920-831-4374 or visit www.fvtc.edu/venturecenter. Space is limited.
