Do you have or want to start a thriving local farm business?
The North Coast Small Business Development Center and the North Coast Growers’ Association are offering a special program for farming businesses in Humboldt County to enhance their business skills. "The Business Side of Farming" cohort learning program will run from March through October
2018. It is funded by a generous grant from the Humboldt County Community Development Block Grant program for micro-entrepreneurs living at low-to-moderate income.
The Business Side of Farming flight provides three benefits: one-to-one business advising, team building with others in the cohort, and workshops.
Business Advising: participants are required to complete 10 or more hours of business advising. This is the most important part of any SBDC program--this is where you get
individualized, confidential coaching from an experienced advisor.
Team Building: there will be many opportunities for members of the cohort to share advice, cheer each other on, and provide feedback. Past participants tell us these relationships often last long past the end of the Flight program.
