The Angelo State University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will offer an eight-week Small Business Management Certificate Program on Tuesdays from July 16-Sept. 3 at the Business Resource Center, 69 N. Chadbourne St.
The course sessions will run from 6-8:30 p.m. each Tuesday, and are designed to help entrepreneurs and small business owners learn the basics of how to start, run and grow a small business in the Concho Valley.  Topics will include business planning, financing, marketing, financial statements, legal issues and tax issues.

Cost of the program is $50 per person, which includes seminars, materials, a personalized notebook, a certificate and the graduation ceremony on Sept. 10.  To earn the certificate, participants are required to attend all seminars, write a business plan draft, complete online training modules and meet with an SBDC advisor before the end of the eight-week course.
