A comprehensive Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP), combined with one-on-one business counseling has proven a winning combination for thousands of businesses in Los Angeles County. This is a 25-hour business start-up course for entrepreneurs that want to start a new business but don’t know where to begin.
This program is an indispensable part of any entrepreneurial endeavor as it allows you to “make mistakes on paper” rather than in the real world. Participants can also take advantage of our free business consulting services in order to help them complete their business plan, receive the proper licenses and permits, and apply for a start-up business loan.
A certificate of completion is awarded upon satisfactory attendance, and submission of required coursework and eligibility documents. The certificate can be utilized to demonstrate to prospective lenders that entrepreneurial training has been undertaken.
The Entrepreneur Training Program runs multiple times throughout the year. Please visit our Calendar for current start dates.
