POWER (Promoting Opportunities for Women Entrepreneurs) is an 11-week course specifically targeted to women entrepreneurs that have an idea for a product or service, and need a starting point, or women business owners that need help growing their existing small business. The 11-week series includes training in financial accounting and management, planning, marketing, and other business skills that give Power members the blueprint needed to launch or expand their own business. Set in an interactive classroom environment, classes are led by community business owners and leaders that are subject-matter experts with real business experience. Throughout the 11-week series, POWER members will develop the self-assurance and business savvy needed to launch and grow their own start-ups. POWER is designed to promote and develop the entrepreneurial talent in women; to help them rise above socio-economic boundaries to achieve independent sufficiency. This happens through education, business training, and continuous professional mentoring. POWER is open to all female entrepreneurs that are residents of Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren Counties. The cost for POWER is $175 per person. POWER 2018 begins Tuesday, April 10, 2018 through Thursday, June 21, 2018.
