All entrepreneurs have a great business idea. Successful entrepreneurs have help getting their business started.
Cochrane Economic Development is bringing the SMARTstart program to Cochrane to help local entrepreneurs turn their ideas into successful businesses.
The program combines online learning, in-person seminars and one-on-one mentorship to provide real-world business skills, personalized advice and a support network to increase the chance of their new business surviving their first crucial years.
The program starts in September; all in-person sessions are held in Cochrane.
If you are a small business owner in your first three years, or an entrepreneur who needs help transforming their idea into action, attend an information session to find out if SMARTstart can help.
Information sessions are being held at the Cochrane Public Library, 405 Railway Street West:
Deadline to register for the program is June 13.
