Whether you’re just getting started, have recently started operations or are a current business owner seeking additional training, Plan It! is a great opportunity to build and expand your knowledge. Offered in the Spring and Fall, our session format includes classroom instruction, one-on-one sessions and graduation. NDC works with community-based organizations to provide training at various locations throughout the Twin Cities Metropolitan area.
Throughout the program, we’ll cover topics including accounting, finance, the credit review process, marketing, operations, management and more. In addition to these topics, we’ll identify and develop skills like budgeting, cash management and professional etiquette, and we’ll help you research, write and confidently articulate a sound business plan.
“We came to NDC with bad credit, no education… and they believed in our idea and they believed in us.”
