Free Financial Literacy for Small Businesses Sessions
Posted September 12, 2013
The Western New England University Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship will offer a monthly series covering the “1, 2, 3’s of Financial Literacy for Small Businesses” starting in September. Each of the six sessions will focus on basic business finance. All sessions are free and open to the public, with a light meal included.
The first session is scheduled for Tuesday, September 24 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the University’s Blake Law Center. The evening will feature James McKeon, professional educator of Marketing, and Lynn Walter, assistant professor of Management, discussing the Basics of Financial and Business Planning.
The series was created to help small business owners to become better informed of the financial issues that can arise as an entrepreneur. Each session will stand on its own, so attendees may pick and choose which sessions are most relevant to their own business situation. The program this year will follow a hypothetical business, Coffee2Go, as its owners think through some important issues in starting and running their proposed drive-up coffee kiosk business.
Future topics will include Accounting Basics, Tax Issues, Cost Effective Marketing, Managing Credit, and Insurance-Risk Management Techniques. For more information and to register, visit www.wne.edu/cie or call 413-796-2030.
