The University of Georgia Small Business Development Center and the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce are inviting small business owners to apply for the FastTrac GrowthVenture program.
The class is an entrepreneur development program, targeted toward established and growing small businesses. Participants learn about the strategic planning process, market research, financial statement analysis and more. Several successful entrepreneurs also drop by during the nine-week program to share their experiences and advice.
The program begins Jan. 29, and deadline for registration is noon Jan. 25. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first serve basis. Only one company per industry is accepted.
It’s $895 per person, but $400 scholarships are available for qualifying companies, thanks to sponsors Georgia Power and Aflac.
