Business Training Program

Each year the City of Winston-Salem hosts a Business Training Program on Tuesdays from 6pm – 8pm. For 2021 the program will be held from October 26 to December 21.

This program strives to help participants evaluate the feasibility of a business concept and develop the skills required to become the owners/operators of successful small businesses. Topics include business plans, financing, legal issues, bookkeeping and taxes, marketing, business insurance, and more. Participants who complete the course are eligible to apply for a city small business loan and encouraged to participate in the next Business Plan Contest. 

This year, due to Covid-19, this class will be taught remotely in order to comply with social distancing measures.

The course is free, but space is limited.
