MIDDLETOWN — The Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce 2021 Side Street to Main Street Minority Business “Know-How” Program is now entering its 10th year.

It is designed specifically to assist minority small business owners in the community without formal business training to become more successful by developing the attitudes, skills and qualities necessary for effective business ownership and success, taking them from the “Side Street” to the “Main Street” of the business community, according to a press release.

Business “Know-How” consists of four, intensive entrepreneurial instructional sessions over a nine-week period and is offered free of charge to eligible minority participants. Virtual class sessions are Tuesdays from 6:15 to 10:30 p.m. on May 25, June 8 and 22, and July 13, with a certificate of completion presentation ceremony July 27.

Sessions will be conducted online via Zoom. All participants will need a video camera on a desktop/laptop computer, or an Android/Apple tablet/phone. An Internet connection speed of at least 5Mb/sec and sufficient data plan is required to participate, according to the chamber.

This special program is funded by a generous grant from Eversource Energy.

Business “Know-How” is designed specifically to assist minority small business owners in Middlesex County and beyond. This program has been very successful and effective in encouraging the development and growth of small, minority-owned businesses, which are now part of the greater business community, the news release said.

Registration is required by contacting program coordinator Jennifer DeKine at jennifer@middlesexchamber.com or 860-347-6924, Ext. 222.
