Clarkson University to Offer Free Small Business Training

The Clarkson University School of Business will again offer free guidance to North Country businesses through its My Small Business 101 series.

Small-business people in the area are invited to attend four weekly two-hour sessions, which will focus on topics to increase productivity and strategically plan for future success.

Each week Marc Compeau, director of innovation and entrepreneurship, and other School of Business faculty will focus on a different topic, including Thinking Strategically, Resource Management, Marketing Management and Financial Management.

Since 2005, My Small Business 101 has provided training to more than 60 businesses.

"Last year’s program was very successful," says Compeau. "Participants told us that they received lots of practical and useful information, tools and resources. They also appreciated the encouragement and inspiration."

There is no cost for the series, which will be held at Clarkson University in Bertrand H. Snell Hall Room 214 from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 21 through February 11.

Those interested in attending should contact Compeau by Tuesday, January 6, at 315-268-3840 or .

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in six alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
