(Denver, CO., February 5, 2013) ---Approximately 543,000 new businesses were created each month in 2011 (the last year of available data) according to the Kauffman Index of Entrepreneurial activity from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Over a half-million new businesses created every month. Entrepreneurship is alive and well in America. One of the needs of new business owners is “real-world” guidance on what they need to know about business ownership and the skills they need to develop to reach success. This lack of professional training and educational support is made more dramatic by the fact that 60% of start-ups fail within 3 years. A new joint venture by two Denver firms wants to meet that need.
American Business Resources, LLC and Strait Management Services, Inc. have joined forces and pooled their resources to produce a series of classes aimed at helping small business owners. Five - four-hour entrepreneurial level classes are being offered beginning on March 16.
The classes: How to Start Your Own Business, How to Prepare a Business Plan, How to Prepare a Marketing Plan, Easy Accounting (for the non-accountant), and How to Prepare a Business Budget are designed for start-ups and young expanding companies. All material is provided for the classes as well as follow-on assistance.
These courses give entrepreneurs real world knowledge and advice that can be used in practical applications in their business start-ups or existing businesses. Bill and Ted have had hands-on experience in the business world and can save business owners or new business start-ups a great deal of time and money. Each course is a stand-alone course, but all of the courses can provide a great base of knowledge in the basics of business ownership.
The classes are being conducted on Saturday mornings to keep the time that participants have to spend away from their jobs or business to a minimum. ABR’s Ted Clifton, and Bill Strait (SMS), have worked together on similar projects before and decided that now is a good time to provide assistance to this often times overlooked and under served segment of our business community.
