Guaranty Bank & Trust Company is pleased to announce Year 2 of its Small Business Development Program. GB&T SEED (Simply Effective Entrepreneur Development) Loan program is designed for new or start-up businesses, including those that have been in operations for less than one year.
We will begin by conducting a business development class starting Thursday, September 22, at the North Delta Planning and Development District, 220 Power Dr., Batesville MS. Registration will begin at 5:30 and will also be available during the second week of classes. During our first year, 95% of the participants completed the six week course. This year the Mississippi Development Authority will take an active role in the class development and course work.
The classes will run for six weeks, one night per week, for approximately 2.5 hours. Topics taught will include:
- Business Description
- Marketing Plan
- Product/Operations Plan
- Management Plan
- Financial Plan
The class is open to any startup business that have been officially open for less than one year, and unlicensed businesses with no limitation on the time in business. We also encourage those with a desire to start a small business or those that may benefit from a small business development class to enroll.
