Monroe College to offer FREE small business workshops!


The Monroe College School of Business and Operation HOPE Present:

FREE Small Business Development Workshops

The Monroe College School of Business and Operation HOPE (in partnership with Popular Community Bank, NA), are collaborating on a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs: FREE Small Business Development Workshops.

Conducted every Wednesday from May 6th – July 29th from 6:00 – 8:00pm in the college’s Ustin Hall at 2375 Jerome Avenue (184th Street) in the Bronx, these thirteen sessions will provide budding businessmen and women with the tools they need to launch and improve their businesses. Participants will learn about the advantages and disadvantages of owning a business, how to get started, build a business plan, and look for funding.

“This is an excellent collaborative with Operation HOPE and the benefit is to the small business community that really is the backbone of the local economy,” said Monroe School of Business Dean Linda Silva-Thompson. “Students in the college’s real-world business and accounting programs as well as our MBA program have a great opportunity here because of the resources provided by Operation HOPE. Maybe more importantly, the general public is invited to participate too, free of charge.”
