Welcome to Small Business Education
University of Maine Cooperative Extension provides small-business education for Maine people. Workshops help home-based and micro-enterprise business entrepreneurs improve their decision-making and business management skills, especially in the “thinking about it” stage, so their businesses can grow and prosper.
Workshops and business management publications cover a variety of business-related topics, including
- financial management,
- Internet marketing,
- record keeping, and
- customer service.
Our highly successful “Small-Business Clinic” program is available through selected UMaine Extension county offices across the state. Small-business clinics are confidential individual consultations with UMaine Extension faculty that provide information and learning opportunities that are based on research and practical experience.
