BizBuilderSC announces classes to take entrepreneurs to next level

  • Tuesday, January 22, 2013

BizBuilderSC supports economic development in South Carolina by providing statewide training for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Classes offered through BizBuilderSC help develop the skills needed to build, manage and expand successful businesses.

The basic business classes provide the fundamentals of market research, financial and business planning and marketing, and result in a business plan. Topic-specific classes help those interested in starting an agricultural-based venture, a family child care business or a technology business. Short courses help businesses increase their knowledge of specific areas such as green decision-making, financial decision-making and signage.

“BizBuilderSC is the result of an increased demand for entrepreneur training throughout the state. We are adding new products to our training portfolio - a direct response to the success of programs such as the agricultural entrepreneur training, and to the needs of our growing knowledge-based business community,” said Laura Williams, entrepreneur services manager for the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce.

The BizBuilderSC Coalition represents the statewide partners in the program, and includes chambers of commerce, economic development organizations, colleges and universities, small business development agencies and nonprofits, which have come together in the best interest of the economic growth of the state.
