PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Jan. 25, 2021 - PRLog -- Individuals who are thinking about starting their own business but need some mentoring are invited to apply to the Goodwill Southwest Florida MicroEnterprise Institute, scheduled for Feb 22 – April 1, 2021.

America is currently experiencing what some are calling a "startup boom." A study from the University of Maryland saw an initial drop in new business applications, but, by the third quarter of 2020, the highest number of applications ever seen was recorded.

The MicroEnterprise Institute is a six-week training program to help emerging entrepreneurs start new ventures and grow small businesses. Graduates complete a comprehensive training course and prepare a solid feasibility plan, working with mentors who are successful businesspeople. Graduates of the program have started over 900 businesses since its inception in 2010.

Virtual classes are scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. on Monday and Thursday evenings online. Recent graduate, Taylor Grant said, "The course challenged me to consider what it takes to establish, operate and maintain a business, and it also challenged me to stay committed and follow through."

To apply, visit, or call (239) 995-2106 Ext. 2304 for more information. The class is limited to 16, due to its interactive nature.  The class fee is $80, but applicants meeting certain income guidelines are eligible to substitute volunteer hours for the fee.

The Goodwill Southwest Florida MicroEnterprise Institute is administrated by the nonprofit Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, and is part of Goodwill's mission of providing life-changing opportunities toward independence for those with disabilities and disadvantages.
