Extension hosts program for budding entrepreneurs
INDIANOLA, Miss. -- The Mississippi State University Extension Service is partnering with stakeholders in the Delta to offer preparation courses aimed at prospective entrepreneurs.
Applications are being accepted for the Simply Effective Entrepreneur Development program, which begins at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 21 at the Mississippi Delta Community College Capps Technology Center in Sunflower County. Classes will meet each Monday night for seven weeks.
The program provides entrepreneurship education to potential small-business owners in the Mississippi Delta who want to qualify for loans of up to $50,000. Course topics include business basics, marketing, production, financial planning, operations and management. Rita Green, an Extension family financial management specialist, will be one of the class instructors.
Guaranty Bank and Trust Company is cosponsoring the entrepreneur development program, which was first held in August. All students who were accepted into that class completed the financial principles course.
