September 06, 2018

Wayne Community College’s Small Business Center has scheduled a series of programs to be led by local entrepreneurs.

The new “4×4” series consists of four free sessions for potential and current small business owners led by four Wayne County business owners.

“We assembled four Wayne residents who’ve been successful in small business to present four information sessions,” explained Small Business Center Director Dale Fey. “The sessions give current and aspiring business owners inside information on the tools, bumps, hiccups, and successes to launching and thriving in a Wayne small business.”
