Workshops, seminars and other events to educate and promote business ownership

Workshops, seminars and other events are offered to educate and promote business ownership in the communities that it serves. The rewards of being your own boss are great, but so are the challenges. If you want to own your own business, we offer entrepreneurship education to help you develop the skills needed to get started. You can learn about opportunity analysis, marketing, finance, taxes and legal issues, and even develop a business plan.

Entrepreneurship Certificate

A 12-semester-hour entrepreneurship certificate is included in the Business Administration program. You can complete the certificate as an area of specialization within the program or as a stand-alone certificate to develop entrepreneurial skills and develop a business plan.

12-semester-hour certificate

A nine-semester-hour endorsement also is offered to provide basic entrepreneurship skills. Students in any CCC program who want to open their own business in the future can complete the certificate as part of their associate of applied science degree or diploma. Entrepreneurs can complete the three courses as a stand-alone certificate. 

Small Business Incubator

The Central Community College Foundation received some specific donations, micro loan funds, and grants to encourage the formation of new small businesses and to assist existing small businesses with growth opportunities. Our small business incubator can help with counseling/coaching, a place (incubator facility) to start a new business and financial support.
