The North End Community Improvement Collaborative, Inc. (NECIC), as part of its microbusiness development program to support entrepreneurs and small business owners, is starting its second round of business plan writing classes on March 19.

Completing the 8-session course will make participants eligible to apply for microloans. The loans start at $500 and, depending on available funding, may range up to $1,000. The goal is to assist potential low-income and minority small business owners in exploring the concepts of entrepreneurship and determine if entrepreneurship is a pathway out of poverty.

In the classes offered, business owners and entrepreneurs will learn to write a business plan as well as a customer profile, a marketing plan, a financial plan, and much more.

The classes will be taught by Jim Stoner, Certified Business Advisor and will be every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-7:30 PM at NECIC, 134 N Main St, Mansfield OH 44902. Classes start March 19 and graduation will be April 11.

The course will be repeated throughout the year, so participants can sign up to attend in other months if they cannot attend this session. The fee for the class is $50.

Interested parties should complete the registration form here or contact Edward Akinyemi at 419-522-1611 (extension 127) or [email protected].
