Entrepreneurial Training: 'COVID-19 Best Practices for Minority and Women Business Owners'

The Buffalo State College Small Business Development Center (SBDC), in collaboration with the Continuing Professional Studies Office, will conduct a five-part entrepreneurial training this summer, "COVID-19 Best Practices for Minority and Women Business Owners." The program begins Tuesday, July 28, and continues for four consecutive Tuesdays in August. Networking begins at 8:30 a.m., and the program runs from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. This training is offered at no charge to participants and is made possible through a generous private donation.

The program provides strategies for jump-starting your enterprise during the coronavirus pandemic. Experts in honing your message, e-commerce, marketing, time management, procurement, and preparing a winning bid will share their exceptional knowledge. The final session is presented in collaboration with the Buffalo Purchasing Initiative, a collaboration of a dozen regional anchor institutions. This session is moderated by BPI program director Antonina Simeti. Participants will meet buyers from several anchor institutions.

This program was piloted in June and received exceptional reviews. To register, please e-mail SBDC business adviser Mauricio Canton Diaz. Once registered, participants will receive a Zoom link necessary for participation. Business owners who complete all five sessions will be awarded a Buffalo State Continuing Professional Studies Certificate.
