TAMIU SBDC will offer free webinars to the small business community

The TAMIU Small Business Development Center invites the business community to attend free workshops to help them meet their resolutions for the coming year through extensive training from TAMIU SBDC experts

The workshops, which start on Tuesday and will last until April, cover various topics of interest to entrepreneurs.

Norma Rodriguez, director of the Texas A&M International University SBDC, said these workshops can provide information to help small business owners succeed in their goals.

“Starting or expanding a small business can be daunting, so it’s no surprise that many potential business owners seek training, either formally or through online sources. “Research shows that business owners who invest in their own education are more likely to succeed in their business,” said Rodriguez.

She added that TAMIU SBDC’s extensive training programs have been available to the business community for over 30 years.

“Over the years, attending our lectures has proven to be a beneficial experience for those who have participated. The workshops provide an opportunity for professionals to network with others in their field, find common ground with colleagues, and develop deeper connections with clients and vendors,” said Rodriguez.

According to Rodriguez, topics for the workshops are chosen through post-training polls.

“Surveys are a key component of our center’s commitment to continuous improvement, allowing us to ensure our training is as effective as possible,” she said. “Information gained from participant responses helps us fine-tune our training approach and uncover any underlying market trends. In order to improve and refine our trainings in the future, we rely heavily on the feedback we receive from participants and stakeholders through surveys.”

Rodriguez invited the business community to participate in these workshops and assured that small business owners who invest in entrepreneurial training are more likely to increase revenue, secure capital, innovate and create significant impact in their communities.

“The TAMIU Small Business Development Center is dedicated to helping local entrepreneurs gain access to the tools they need to grow their businesses. Small entrepreneurs can come to the Center for guidance in all areas of business management. The areas of finance, marketing, management, operations, licensing, planning, expansion and human resources are just a few examples. TAMIU SBDC is the place to go if you’re looking for information on how to start or grow your own business,” said Rodriguez.
