I believe in entrepreneurship training. It’s a good investment in your small town’s future. The more successful local entrepreneurs you have in town, the stronger your local economy, and the more resources you have to take on your local challenges.
Good entrepreneurship training can cost money. One source for funding of up to $50,000 in the U.S. is the Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG) through the USDA Rural Development. The next deadline is August 6, 2012.
