Entrepreneurial Excellence Program Class 13 Kicks Off March 21st
The Class 13 Entrepreneurial Excellence Program will be starting on March 21st, and we still have a few openings for the class! The EEP Program provides an invaluable opportunity for community members to learn from local “best in class” business professionals who volunteer their time to help others in our community succeed in business. This class provides a great foundation for anyone starting or even considering starting a business in Tallahassee.
“I never realized the wealth of resources available in Tallahassee for ‘budding’ entrepreneurs until I took this class. Actually, I was beginning to think I had made a mistake in moving to Tallahassee as far as hopes for a successful business venture location. Thanks to EEP, I now believe there is a rainbow in the sky.” -Michelle Gamble, Sankofa Healing and Enrichment, Inc., Class 12
The deadline to register is Friday, March 3rd.
