Tennessee Small Business Development Centers On-line Training
I received a message from Chip Bailey, the Incubator Director/TSBDC Counselor at the Holston Business Development Center, which is part of the Tennessee Small Business Development Centers (TSBDC). Chip informed me of some valuable training courses offered through the TSBDC website.
The on-line training courses are numerous and free. The following list are samples of some of the offerings:
- Crafting A Business Plan
- Starting A New Business
- Understanding Intellectual Property
- Finding Money to Start a Business
- Finding and Attracting an Investor
- Market Insight: Conducting Market Research
The TSBDC is a Tennessee based organization that is partially funded by the SBA and the State of Tennessee. The TSBDC has offices throughout Tennessee, including Oak Ridge and Knoxville. In Knoxville, call 865-246-2663 to speak to someone at the TSBDC. Chip Bailey works out of the Kingsport, Tenn., office. He is the director of the Holston Business Development Center - A Small Business Incubator that serves the East Tennesse counties of Hawkins, Hancock, and Grainger.
The TSBDC offers valuable resources for Tennessee inventors. Anyone who wishes to profit from their invention should investigate those resources.
