CEDC Event Registration
The Community Economic Development Center supports emerging and growing businesses by offering free one-on-one counseling to assist with business planning, marketing, bookkeeping, paperwork filings, and identification of lenders or investors. Through Ohio Northern University's James F. Dicke College of Business Administration, non-credit certification classes and monthly workshops are offered to develop business and civic leaders to cultivate the entrepreneurial mindset and create opportunities in and around central and Northwest Ohio.
Workshops: The 2013-2014 Entrepreneurship Workshops are a series of one-time lectures given by professionals in the field. Each workshop begins with a networking event, followed by the presentation. The lecture runs approximately one hour. The lecturers are available after the event should you wish to meet them or have specific questions.
Classes: The CEDC offers multiple evening classes throughout the year covering such topics as financial literacy, computer literacy, employment laws, business plan preparation, or marketing a small business. These classes will be one to six weeks in duration and do repeat throughout the year. If you are interested in achieving non-credit certification in the given topic, you must achieve perfect attendance for the class.
Should you wish to work on a specific topic related to your business or business idea, our Advisors are here to help you five days a week, by appointment.
