NEW BEDFORD – The South Eastern Economic Development Corporation and Rockland Trust Community Development Corp. will hold two basic business workshops in New Bedford aimed at assisting potential and existing entrepreneurs.

The free workshops are being held in cooperation with the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Massachusetts Small Business Development Center, the New Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce, the New Bedford Economic Development Council and SCORE, the former Service Corps of Retired Executives, a volunteer resource partner of the SBA.

Both workshops will be held at the Fairfield Inn & Suites, Weypoint Event Center, 185 MacArthur Drive, New Bedford on Wednesday, June 20, 2012. The first of these workshops entitled “Learn the Fundamentals in Planning, Preparing, and Financing Your Business” will be held from 9 a.m. to noon. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge to attendees.

This workshop is geared toward helping potential entrepreneurs evaluate and understand the fundamentals of owning one’s own business.

Attendees will also be provided with a free guide to writing a business plan and other materials.

The second workshop entitled “Understanding the Purpose of Financial Statements and How They Can Help Determine the Health of Your Business” will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. The workshop is to help attendees understand a balance sheet, income and cash flow statements, and to anticipate financial needs in order to operate a business more efficiently.
