“Mine Your Business,” a nine-week course on creating and running a small business, launches Thursday, Sept. 19, and aims to bring business fundamentals, coaching by mentors and the chance to win money to pump into a new venture.
The course is sponsored by Commonwealth Catholic Charities in conjunction with Women in Motion to boost economic improvement. It will be held weekly from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays through Nov. 14, and will include workshops, one-on-one mentoring with experienced business coaches in counseling sessions to help lead participants from an idea of being an entrepreneur to implementing a viable business.
Those who complete the course will be able to participate in a “Pitch & Present” competition, with the top three winners receiving prizes of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 to invest in their new business ventures.
The normal $750 course fee is being covered by full scholarships provided by Commonwealth Catholic Charities.
