Description Event Location
Boots to Business: Reboot Class 01/24/2018 - 8:30am to 4:00pm

Boots to Business: Reboot is a two-step training program that provides participants an overview of business ownership as a career vocation, an outline and knowledge on the components of a business plan, a practical exercise in opportunity recognition, and an introduction to available public and private sector resources.

The initial program is followed up with one of two opportunities.  Foundations of Entrepreneurship is an eight-week, online training (may be self-paced) course presented by a consortium of professors and skilled business advisors from the SBA network, Syracuse University.  Mississippi State University offers a six-week online, interactive classroom focused on identifying and understanding customers; developing and refining a business mode; and drafting a business plan.

After completing Boots to Business: Reboot participants will have the tools and knowledge they need to identify a business opportunity, draft a business plan, connect with local resources and launch their small business.
