Albany State University Center for Entrepreneurship and Continuing Education has two more courses to offer for fall 2009. The classes are focused on meeting the needs of today’s business owners and potential business owners.
A grant writing class is being offered to individuals wanting to learn how to write effective and powerful grant proposals. Participants will learn the essential components of a grant proposal package; the differences between government and foundation proposals; the behind-the-scenes decisions that determine proposal acceptance and denial; and much more. This course will be helpful to any business owner who is looking for additional funding sources to grow his or her business. This easy-to-follow course will provide sensible guidelines and instructions for writing a grant proposal from the perspective of the grant maker.
Each class has two sessions. Upcoming classes are scheduled for Oct. 20 and 27; Nov. 3 and 10; Nov. 17 and 24; and Dec. 1 and 8. Classes are from 6 to 9 p.m. The cost of the class is $149.
Vincent Hunt will introduce social media to all interested individuals on Oct. 29, Nov. 5, 12 and 19 (Thursdays) from 6 to 8 p.m. Known as “Guru” in social media, Hunt will share proven techniques on using social media as effective marketing tools to increase business productivity. In today’s world, successful marketing is definitely the key to thriving business. No matter how good one’s services are, people need to know what is being offered. One of the best ways to get the word out is through social media. Twitter, Facebook and Linked In are all social media outlets that are extremely popular. More business owners are tapping into the potential that social media offer.
The class size is limited to 18, so students should register early for $45. The class site is the Center for Entrepreneurship and Continuing Education located at 230 S. Jackson Street, Suite 355.
These classes have been established at the request of entrepreneurs who are seeking practical help in business ownership at a nominal cost. All fall 2009 courses are now open for registration.
