Entrepreneurs & small business owners invited to participate in the All In: Business Plan Writing Series

Classes begin February 23rd with a hybrid format

Garrett College is excited to announce the return of the All In: Business Plan Writing Series and Power of Possibilities Competition. If you or someone you know is considering starting their own business, or have a pursuable idea, but unsure of how or where to start – look no further!

Classes for the All In: Business Plan Writing Series will officially begin on February 23, 2021, and are offered through GC’s Business Solutions department within the Continuing Education & Workforce Development division.

This series aims to prepare individuals with the tools and knowledge required to successfully produce a business plan based on an idea. Participants will be provided with various mentors and receive viable business coaching from start to finish in creating a business plan.

As part of the business plan series, participants will also learn how to create a practical business plan, conduct a market and competitor analysis, understand product and/or service concept development, produce financial and operating plans, and design a go-to-market roadmap.

This year, the series of classes will be offered as a hybrid class. Participants will have the option to attend in-person or virtually. By adding the virtual option this year, organizers of the event are hoping to attract more individuals to participate, including those from out of the area.

Participating in the All In: Business Writing Series is not required to participate in the Power of Possibilities Business Plan Competition that will take place this spring, which offers a cash prize for the top business idea. However, past contestants have found it to be very helpful in preparing for the competition, as the course is designed to provide key support for individuals to research the potential of their ideas and ultimately, be successful.

Garrett College Business Solutions provides a variety of support and assistance to small business owners and managers in the Garrett County area and surrounding communities. For additional information on the business plan series and competition, contact Jodi McClintock at 301-387-3142 or email
