Consolidated Credit and Comerica Bank Will Reschedule Small Business Workshop Series

NOTE: This Small Business Workshop Series has been canceled. We will reschedule this event for later in the year.

Following the success of their small business workshop series hosted last year in Riviera Beach and the City of Plantation, Consolidated Credit and Comerica bank have announced that they will host a new small business workshop series this spring in Riviera Beach, Florida. If you’re thinking of launching a small business or startup venture in Riviera Beach and greater Palm Beach County, you’re encouraged to attend to receive training from industry experts to take your business to the next level. The 6-part workshop series will teach you everything you need to know to successfully start and grow a business here in South Florida.

“We’re excited that we’ve been able to partner with Comerica Bank again to bring the small business workshop series back to Riviera Beach,” says Maria Gaitan, Director of Community Development at Consolidated Credit. “The workshops we held last year were a resounding success. We want to give more Palm Beach County small business owners the opportunity to attend and learn what they need to know to be successful in 2020.”

Past participants talk about their experience

Receiving small business readiness certification

At the end of the six-part workshop series, participants who attended all six sessions will earn a business readiness certificate.

“Many cities and counties have similar requirements and steps you must take to become an approved vendor,” Gaitan continues. “This small business workshop series will teach you those steps for Riviera Beach. Anyone who attends all six parts of the workshop will receive a business readiness certificate. This can help you get the formal certification you need as a business operator in Palm Beach County.”

In order to receive the business readiness certification, you must attend all six sessions of the small business workshop series. However, there is no requirement for attending all six sessions. In fact, Gaitan and her team encourage anyone who is interested but short on time to attend as many sessions as they can fit in their schedule.

“We understand that attending seminars every week for six weeks may be a challenge for people working to start a small business,” Gaitan agrees. “However, even if you can only attend one or two sessions that focus on topics you need to learn, that will be invaluable on your journey to start a new venture. And you’re welcome to attend!”
