Posted: Monday, 15 February 2010

TROY, Ala.—Alabama residents who want to start their own businesses or achieve the next level of business success will have the opportunity to receive specialized training through a program that will be offered beginning in March in Enterprise.

The program—NxLeveL Business Planning Series— is sponsored by the Troy University’s Small Business Development Center (TROY-SBDC). It is co-sponsored by the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce, the Enterprise, Coffee, Geneva Economic Development Corporation, and Enterprise Community College.

The TROY-SBDC will be providing this training in 9 weekly sessions on Monday evenings beginning March 1 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., said Judy Callin, a consultant with TROY’s center.

The series, now in its eleventh year in Southeast Alabama, is provided by the TROY-SBDC at a reduced cost of $150 per participant, and includes the cost of the textbook, workbook, resource guide, and all session handouts.

NxLeveL is designed to enhance entrepreneurial skills and assist in creating a comprehensive business plan. The course is offered throughout the state by various Small Business Development Centers in conjunction with the Alabama Small Business Development Consortium in partnership with the SBA.

The NxLeveL Business Planning Series is designed to teach the skills needed to create, develop, and strengthen successful business ventures -- the philosophy is “learn it tonight – use it tomorrow.” The program addresses the special needs of entrepreneurs by providing a practical, hands-on and common sense approach to developing their business.

Seating is limited and reserved for the first 25 paid attendees. Contact the TROY-SBDC at 334-674-2425, or jcallin@troy.edu for additional information or to register.
