Thinking about going into business for yourself? The Hatchery seminars can help.

The Hatchery, MaineStream Finance’s free classes for beginning and growing entrepreneurs, will offered at the MaineStream Rockland office starting in September. These seven seminars take the mystery out of starting a new business or growing an existing one. They address the questions you need to ask before you start, and look at what you need to do as your business grows. Attending these classes will help provide answers and suggest many useful resources.  
The series will examine your value proposition, how to create a business plan, get stared with marketing and sales, address legal and regulatory issues, and how to create a team. Speakers will include entrepreneurs who will share their experience and specialists who understand the numbers, laws, issues, marketing, sales, and regulations.

The classes will start on Thursday, September 28 from 6 to 7:30 PM, and will run every Thursday until November 9.

The series will be anchored by Ken Greenleaf, Business Advisor at MaineStream Finance.    This class series is free and open to anyone, but space is limited so we ask you to register by visiting and clicking on Register Rockland.
