Side Street to Main Street Looking For New Candidates for Minority Entrepreneurship Program

From the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce: The Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce is now accepting candidates for the Fall 2017/Winter 2018 Side Street to Main Street Business & Leadership Development Program scheduled to begin onTuesday, October 10, 2017. To participate, all interested candidates must attend the Mandatory Class 21 Program Orientation and Application Submission Meeting, on Tuesday, September 5, 2017, 7:00 PM, at the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce, 393 Main Street, Middletown, CT.

Now entering its 21st year, the Side Street to Main Street Business & Leadership Development Program is a one year long entrepreneurial and business development course, with a rigorous curriculum, designed to assist minority small business owners in the community, who have not had 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.

Since the inception of the Program in 1997, over 248 people have graduated from the Side Street to Main Street Business & Leadership Development Program, which has been fully funded and supported by Aetna, Inc., and it has been a successful and most effective way in which we have encouraged the development and growth of small, minority-owned businesses, which are now part of the business community.

“I would like to thank Aetna for its outstanding support of the Side Street to Main Street Business & Leadership Development Program. Aetna is an outstanding corporate citizen. I am proud of the work that this program is doing for our local business community, and it would not be possible without the support of Aetna,” said President of the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce Larry McHugh.
