MONTGOMERY, Alabama — The Alabama Community College System is planning an expansion of its entrepreneurship classes and support programs.
The expansion will include new courses to teach would-be business owners how to develop business plans, obtain loans and acquire mandatory licenses.
“The Alabama Community College System holds the key to the state’s workforce development needs, and training entrepreneurs is an important way to help meet those needs,” said ACCS Chancellor Mark Heinrich.
“These are people who will be creating jobs and opportunities across the state in the future.”
This semester, Gadsden State Community College launched an entrepreneurship program offering instruction on financial and marketing issues that business owners commonly face.
And in a press release, the community college system announced it is planning to expand entrepreneurship classes across the system, beginning with pilot programs on eight to 10 campuses.
