Weekend Guide: Get motivated with the Entrepreneur Training Program

SIPA’s Entrepreneur Training Program (ETP) is open to all new and current small business owners who wish to learn more about business operations and practices. Jen Carpinteyro over at REWIND The Recycled Electronics Store told us they had participated in the program last year, and benefited from the program. She wrote: “Thanks to SIPA, REWIND The Recycled Electronics Store is no longer a dream…. Taking the ETP program gave us the motivation and confidence to open REWIND.”
