PEWAUKEE, Wis. (Thursday, May 14, 2020) – Waukesha County Technical College’s Small Business Center is offering a variety of non-credit workshops and courses this summer designed for small business owners and entrepreneurs to help them achieve success in new and existing ventures.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, however, all SBC courses will be held online using the Zoom video conferencing tool – with the exception of QuickBooks Pro Level 1 and How to Start a Food Business, which have been canceled for the summer.

“COVID-19 has slowed us down, but it won’t stop us nor the entrepreneurs we serve,” said Russ Roberts, executive director of the SBC. “The WCTC Small Business Center remains open and ready to deliver the same top-notch courses, only virtually. In addition, free coaching by phone or via Zoom is always available.”

Summer classes, which start in June, will cover topics such as start-up basics, business planning, accounting/taxes, marketing/sales, social media and more. Offerings include:

  • FaStart Workshop
  • Business Plan Development
  • Organize Business Finances
  • Social Media for Business
  • LinkedIn Marketing

Please visit the SBC webpage for dates and times of course offerings, along with programming for fall 2020.
