The goal is to complete a business plan that new or existing businesses can use to improve business management, apply for financing, or develop new strategic initiatives.
The 10-week program is offered in Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay. In Green Bay, the class will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday evenings beginning February 3. The Sturgeon Bay class will meet at the local Northeast Wisconsin Technical College campus from 6 to 9 p.m. on Monday evenings starting February 1. It is co-sponsored with the Door County Economic Development Corporation.
