The Cecil County Chamber of Commerce is launching “The Entrepreneur Zone” a new program aimed at helping small business owners in the county grow. As reported in The Cecil Whig:
The program, called “The Entrepreneur Zone,” is divided into three, four-week parts depending on the length of time a business has been in operation. Dividing the program into three sections allows business owners to get help with specific problems they face at each stage of growth, said Bonnie Grady, president and CEO of the chamber.
“Businesses go through phases and different periods of growth,” she said. “Businesses are different from the day they begin to the day they reach one year in business to when they reach five years in business.”
The idea to start the program came about because most chamber members are businesses with less than 10 employees and the chamber wanted to offer something that would be useful to the majority of its members, Grady said. The program is also intended to take the place of a similar program that used to be run by the Small Business Technology Development Center but is no longer being offered, she added.
