Athens Land Trust preserves, protects, and strengthens the fabric of the community through education and the stewardship of land for purposes of affordable housing, conservation, agriculture, and economic development.
Athens Land Trust is excited to host this course designed to help budding entrepreneurs develop their business and for existing business owners to grow their business. Thanks to funding through the ACC Community Development Block Grant, there is no cost to participate. Our goal is to have registrants attend every course date to take full advantage of this amazing FREE offering, as well as to develop a written business plan for their business. Workshops will be part-lecture and part in-class work to give attendees time to develop strong business plans and strategies. Meetings will also feature local guest speakers.
