Six workshops are collectively designated as the “Certification Series ” and provide basic information for early stage entrepreneurs.
Workshops are conducted during work hours, after hours and on weekends. Several of the workshops are provided in Spanish.
We also conduct free mini workshops in public libraries and/or chambers of commerce primarily in the North and Northwest suburbs. These mini workshops usually begin at 7 p.m. and last about 1.5 hours.
