Self-Employment Training (SET) Program

Self-Employment Training (SET) Program

You have an amazing business idea …. now what?  At the EBRC, our Self-Employment Training (SET) program will take you through a series of 8 two-hour workshops designed to move you from that “light bulb” idea through the process of researching, planning and firming up your creative business idea, including writing your business plan.

Business concept workshop topics include research, industry and technology trends, marketing and social media.  Business planning workshops take you through financial planning and operational planning.  You will gain insight on taxes, insurance, profits and process, including an introduction to cash flow.

We can help you SET the proper course for your business success.

EBRC appreciates the generous financial contribution of Yarmouth Mutual Insurance toward the operation of the Self Employment Training Program.
