The Center for Entrepreneurship Training at Salt Lake Community College, 4600 S. Redwood Road, offers services to those wanting to start their own business and firms with fewer than 200 employees that need assistance.

Those interested in starting a business can receive an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of their plans. Results are plotted on a "wheel graph" so the prospective entrepreneur can see where improvement is needed. The graph is divided into finance, legal, marketing, production, leadership and personnel sections.If a person is strong in marketing and production but weak in financial or personnel skills, the center offers programs tailored to meet those needs. After a person has participated in the training, the center offers other services like "Connections," a group of busi-ness-people and entrepreneurs who meet monthly to talk about business issues, brainstorm new ideas, troubleshoot potential problems and act as a networking resource for each other.

The center also offers assistance to owners/managers, home-based businesses and retail, wholesale, manufacturing, service and farm businesses in problem solving.

Comprehensive management training and counseling services at the center include one-on-one counseling, special workshops and seminars, loan development and financial planning, local market research, small business library and continuous counseling on business plans.
