Developed by the Glenda & David Regenbaum Center for Entrepreneurship - HCC Northwest, the Small Business Success Series by HCC© is a 5-Module program that offers an opportunity for hands-on learning and interaction with faculty, guest entrepreneurs, business experts, and peer delegates.
This series is specifically developed for entrepreneurs either planning to start a business, are in the early stages of launch, or are attempting to grow their business.
A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to those students who graduate from the series. Missed a class? Not a problem. You can still join us for the remaining sessions and make up any you might miss in a different cohort.
