Massachusetts-based Massasoit Community College is teaming up with the Service Corps of Retired Executives to create a small business training program, the Middleboro Gazette reports. The program will help teach entrepreneurs in southeastern Massachusetts the ins and outs of a small business, such as business incorporation and starting an LLC.
The school will host a series of SCORE quickSTART workshops starting next month. The courses, which will be taught by SCORE counselors, will use a series of exercises and tools to allow entrepreneurs to immediately take what they learn into the real world.
“By providing professional training to entrepreneurs starting new businesses, we will improve their chances for success, thereby boosting the local economy, and adding jobs for Southeastern Massachusetts residents,” Frank Sebastian, SCORE chapter chairperson, told the paper.
The entire group of classes will be offered at the school’s Brockton campus, but the first workshop will also be available at its Canton location as well.
The program will help create jobs in an area that has been hard hit by the recession. Unemployment in Plymouth County – where the school’s main campus is located – topped 11 percent earlier this year, and still has not dropped below the national average.
