Small Business Classes
Business Skills Seminars Covering Important Topics for Business Owners
Silicon Valley SCORE's small business classes offer expert help for any business by providing financial guidance, advertising and marketing ideas, methods of generating business goals, and developing managerial skills for small businesses and non-profits alike. SCORE counselors are business consultants and mentors who provide expertise and suggest resources for the growth and success of your business.
In addition to the classes on specific issues, we host a full day "Small Business Boot Camp" workshop which covers an array of topics in an interactive workshop environment. This is a must for the first time entrepreneur. It provides the participant with an overview of what it means to be a business owner.
The topic specific classes provided by Silicon Valley SCORE offer key critical information for all aspects of small business:
- Legal requirements
- Cash control
- Managing employees
- Internet marketing
- Social media
- Business planning
- Buying or selling a business
- and more...
SCORE also has a series of classes that specialize in the unique problems of
nonprofit organizations including funding, and fiscal management.Our SCORE volunteers who teach our classes have lifetime expertise in a variety of industries and markets, and volunteer their time offering that experience to small businesses and startups to ensure success. We also bring in professionals such as attorneys, accounts, business brokers, insurance agents and many others to help our clients.
