The Business Roadmap Program is a series of 8 start-up workshops detailing the essentials for your business. The program is open to anyone interested in learning about small business. Although attending classes in order is encouraged, you may attend any individual class on any particular date without having attended prior classes. The program is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays as scheduled below. The program is also offered in Spanish.
