CWE BUSINESS PLANNING COURSE Just as we are wrapping up one business planning course, we have started another. The Center for Women & Enterprise has 15 entrepreneurs enrolled in a 10 week business planning course. This is a hybrid course which creates a larger cohort with additional students from Black River Innovation Campus in Springfield and Do North Coworking in Lyndonville. Students meet in person at their respective coworking space locations and then video conference with other spaces and a CWE instructor. We're very excited to see this class progress!
