Bitterroot College of The University of Montana is teaming up with Ravalli County Economic Development Authority to offer a four-part course on small business and formal business planning.
The course, Small Business Venture Training, is taught by small-business professionals. Cynthia Rademacher of CMR Marketing Strategies, attorney Dick Weber and certified public accountant Lisa Glenn will teach marketing, business law and financial management, respectively. Small Business Venture Training will replace RCEDA’s Basic Business course.
Each section of the course is comprised of five three-hour classes. The first three sections of the course are held on consecutive Thursdays from 9 a.m to noon at Bitterroot College in Hamilton. The first section is an introduction to small business planning and entrepreneurship beginning Feb. 7. The second section addressing marketing small businesses starts March 21, and the third section on accounting and finance in small business begins May 2. The final part of the course is a week of labs where students will use Business Plan Pro software, the industry standard, to create business plans.
Continuing education units are available for this course.
