Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP)

Due to COVID-19, we will not be offering the Entrepreneurial Training Program this spring semester, 2021. We are actively working on some exciting changes and plan to offer ETP virtually in the future. 
For those looking to complete a full business plan and financial projections right away, we recommend taking BizSmart Sprint and also requesting no-cost, one-on-one assistance from one of our Business Counselors.  To request counseling, please complete our Electronic Request for Consultation form.

What is the Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP)?

ETP is an intensive business planning training program designed to help qualified applicants wanting to start a business or grow an existing business, and who want to write a high-quality business plan suitable for presentation to a bank. This program is a comprehensive combination of courses, business plan development and optional individual counseling, and is available for start-up ventures or business expansion.
