Small Business Management Program

Small Business Management Program (SBM)Zoom Call

Now is the time to request more information about the 2020-2021 SBM Program. The program will likely start with Zoom classes and advising sessions, though as soon as we can do so safely, our team plans to transition to live, in-person classes. Classes in the 2020-2021 cohort will likely alternate between Newport and Lincoln City every other month, thus ensuring businesses throughout the county convenient access throughout the year. The Small Business Management Program is the flagship program of the Oregon Coast Small Business Development Center. The program features monthly workshops with expert speakers on a wide range of business topics, from September through June. And, SBM participants meet with their personal business advisor each month, one on one, in a confidential setting, to discuss long-term strategies and goals, or to discuss other aspects of their business that may be of concern at the time. It’s the best way you can build in time each month to ensure you’re working ON your business, not merely IN your business. Click here to learn more.

Class locations are noted for each session, and are typically either at the OCCC Central County Campus in Newport (map), the OCCC North County Center in Lincoln City (map), or the OCCC South County Center in Waldport (map). Other locations will be noted where applicable.
