“This course is designed to help existing businesses in refreshing or completing a business plan and essential for anyone planning a new business venture,” commented Adriana Dungan, the Rural Enterprise Assistance Project’s (REAP) Northeast Business Specialists.

Dungan hopes small business owners or potential new businesses can take advantage of this opportunity, especially since it isn’t offered locally that often.
