Here at the New Hampshire Small Business Development Center we have developed a suite of online “e-Learning” courses to help new entrepreneurs and seasoned business owners learn the basics in management, marketing, finance, social media, customer service, exporting, global marketing, e-commerce and more—all at no cost to the learner!
There are over 40 e-courses, including nine that launched this week. The courses have been viewed 10,000 times by some 7,000 individuals, and the most popular course has been “Starting a Business in New Hampshire.”
Starting in early 2016, our resource partners and funders around the state can help their constituents take advantage of these free courses by participating in our new e-Learning Partner Program. Business resource partners may post the SBDC e-Learning icon on their own web sites, creating a direct link to the e-courses.
Banks, accounting firms, law firms and other New Hampshire for-profit businesses with clientele that are primarily small business owners or those who are considering starting a business will also have the opportunity to participate in the Partner Program.
If your agency or organization is interested in becoming an NH SBDC e-Learning Partner, contact Heidi Edwards Dunn firstname.lastname@example.org. More info to come in 2016!
