GROW’s classes, programs and workshops are a resource for entrepreneurs in West Michigan.

We’re a few weeks into the New Year and at Grand Rapids Opportunities for Women (GROW) we’re starting the year off strong with a full schedule of classes. When it comes to starting your business or growing as an entrepreneur, the path to success can be filled with many bumps in the road. That’s why at GROW we give you the tools you need to handle those bumps with ease.  You will find many different training classes, programs, and workshops that entrepreneurs access to start businesses, write business plans, and grow their businesses. You will have access to experienced business people who volunteer to facilitate these classes and mentor you, enabling you to learn first-hand from those who do the work and have been in your shoes at one point or another.

While we have many classes to help entrepreneurs find success, one program that provides an excellent foundation for entrepreneurs is Start Smart. Start Smart is a business readiness course that is offered monthly. The class focuses on the fundamentals of doing business and how to provide a solid foundation for your business. Once the Start Smart class is completed, participants are provided with the ability to understand what it takes to run their own business and how to begin the next steps of working towards success.

Start the new year off right by building a solid foundation for your business or startup.

Our next Start Smart class is February 10 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  We recommend that interested participants attend an Intro to GROW class prior to Start Smart and register ahead of time as the class fills quickly and we cannot accommodate the additional walk ins due to limited space.
