Organization develops Zoom-based business classes

The Greater Ocala Community Development Corporation (GOCDC) was organized by the Marion County NAACP and Labor and Industry Committee in July 1994 to provide social and economic solutions to West Ocala residents. Since its inception, GOCDC has been helping local entrepreneurs build better businesses through mentoring, education and obtaining loans and grants.

For the past two years, the GOCDC has been providing education for entrepreneurs through its Build a Better Business Series (BBB). With the impact of COVID-19 on small business owners, the corporation has developed a new series that will include weekly Zoom-based classes on Tuesdays and a call-in radio talk show on Thursdays, in which business owners will have an opportunity to ask question of industry experts.

The focus of the series is to provide small business owners and nonprofits with information and resources to help their company thrive through social distancing and beyond. The classes are free of charge and all course materials will be provided by GOCDC and sponsors and will be distributed to participants weekly.

The new series will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1. For more information and to register, visit gocdc.org.
