Do you have a dream of starting a business? 

You can own a business, even if you don’t have much experience!

Community Action Development Corporation of Allentown (CADCA) provides entrepreneurial skill training to prospective and existing business owners through our Start Your Business course.

The Start Your Business program is designed to guide individuals through the process of starting and operating a successful small business. Our program has been developed to help the starting entrepreneur or the existing business owner. We provide four courses that are held once a week for four weeks in a row. The series includes instruction on financial planning, marketing and promotion, accounting, and networking in addition to basic business skills.  Local successful business owners and experts assist in presenting and strengthening course material as students are guides through the process of writing a business plan.  Contact Sadie Saddiq at ssaddiq@caclv.org or by at 484-280-8885

During the program, you will work with CADCA staff on a one-on-one basis to assist you with writing a business plan and preparing for your business. 

Our next class will begin August 1, 2017.
