The program is ideal for all business owners, regardless of their stages of business.  From existing and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to grow their businesses, to entrepreneurs who are seeking small business financing and managers and supervisors who want an understanding of the core principles of running a successful business, participants incorporate their own business experiences to determine their future strategies, tap into business resources and build their business networks.

More than 125 entrepreneurs have already experienced and found success with the Small Business Institute.

“The Small Business Institute was very interactive.  We shared and learned a lot of creative ideas to help in our businesses,” notes Small Business Institute graduate Michael Straub of Michael Straub Photography, Inc., Mt. Pocono.  “I would definitely recommend this program to other entrepreneurs.  I now have a better sense of my business and feel more confident.”

The Small Business Institute is sponsored by The Honesdale National Bank and Bold Gold Media Group. Cost is $149 per person.  Seating is limited and registration is first-come, first-served and expected to fill quickly.
