The CEDF Business Education Center is an initiative of the Community Economic Development Fund that offers learning in a variety of formats. This dedicated website, WeTeachSuccess.org, houses content that we judge to have ongoing usefulness to our borrowers and other small business owners and aspirants.
Learn more about the Community Economic Development Fund at our main website.
Our online initiatives include replays of our webinars and other recorded presentations, self-paced financial fundamentals and marketing courses plus a partnership with Santa Clara University’s My Own Business Institute to provide a free, comprehensive set of courses for Launching Your Business and Growing Your Business.
Our Chalkboard instructional email newsletter contains articles reprinted here. And our Small Business As Usual podcast series provides convenient ways to stay informed and inspired on current issues impacting small business operations without requiring large blocks of time.
Our in-person workshops offer in-depth, hands-on training, primarily in financial- and management-related subjects taught by experts. Focused seminars combine useful content with peer interaction and networking opportunities. Workshops and seminars are offered in many locations across Connecticut and at the CEDF office in Meriden.
