The Wyoming County Business Center, the lead entrepreneurship development entity for Wyoming County has secured certification and designation to serve as an affiliate of the Kauffman Foundation’s FastTrac New Venture Program, a professional entrepreneurship development program owned by the Kauffman Foundation, the world’s largest foundation dedicated exclusively to entrepreneurship development. 

The FastTrac New Venture program represents a great opportunity for students and adults alike who want to start a business and gain access to a very successful program.  FastTrac New Venture is a series of 10 training sessions (one night a week, 6:00-9:00 p.m., for 10 weeks).  Spring Classes will begin March 21 - May 23, 2017 and Fall Classes will begin September 5 - November 8, 2017.  

Classes will be held at the Wyoming County Agriculture and Business Center, 36 Center Street, Warsaw, NY. The program's first three training modules are devoted to determining the viability and market potential of the business idea and the last 7 classes help build the framework for a business plan.  The classes are facilitated by two entrepreneurs.   After graduation, additional technical assistance will be provided to fully complete unfinished business plans, examine financing options, assist with business locations if needed or provide further guidance.   

Jim Pierce, President of the Wyoming County Business Center explained why they decided to offer FastTrac New Venture in Wyoming County, “we went searching for the best and most comprehensive model of a professional entrepreneurship development program because we recognize in Wyoming County that small businesses and new startups are one of our primary sources of job growth.  FastTrac New Venture fits the bill perfectly plus it has the resources of the Kauffman Foundation to back us up.  This program is for anyone that is serious about a starting their own business."

The Wyoming County Business Center is greatly appreciative of our generous program sponsors Tompkins Bank of Castile, Five Star Bank and Complete Payroll and the workforce development resources available to participants through Community Action for Wyoming County.  To learn about the Kauffman Foundation’s FastTrac New Venture program go to www.fasttrac.org  For more information about the local program call Jennifer Tyczka at the Wyoming County Business Center at (585) 786-3764 or email at jtyczka@wycoida.org
