I recently took a 10-week Business Planning course that was sponsored by the Rutland Economic Development Corp. (REDC) and CWE Vermont (Center for Women & Enterprise), based in Burlington. The course was open to Rutland area residents who wanted help developing their Business Plan for their existing business or new startup idea. CWE Vermont also welcomed men entrepreneurs like myself to attend course (Thanks!).
The course was held at REDC in downtown Rutland. The “local instructor” was Hannah Abrams of Business Coach VT, based in Killington. Hannah was a great instructor and helped us toward our goal of developing our business plans! For one class session, Gwen Pokalo, Director of CWE Vermont taught our class about the important “financial” topic. CWE Vermont offers many business related workshops at their Burlington location. In this case, this course was a “community” course offered in another region of Vermont.
