Small Business Management (SBM)
The Small Business Management program at EOC Technology Center brings benefits of improved business management to entrepreneurs and aspiring owners.
Research proves, most small businesses fail within the first 10 years. We have found most successful small business owners have a plan, then build a network around them and learn from others. Learning from those who went before them, both successes and failures, is the best way to improve your chances of success. Companies that plan grow 30% faster than those that don't.
One of our goals is to help small business owners gain access to mentors who will help guide them through the process of growing their company because growing businesses invest in our local economy and create jobs.
"Finding mentors can help minimize mistakes with your time and money," Jeff Ragan of KiZE Concepts.
