Store Owner Series

 

This series of FREE workshops provides valuable training for small businesses located in Philadelphia on topics that are practical and relevant for a business owner at any stage. We also provide opportunities for businesses to network with other small businesses in their local community.

We offer workshops at Community College of Philadelphia's three Regional Center locations in Northeast, Northwest and West Philadelphia, as well as at our Main Campus and in South Philadelphia.
