"The course gave me the tools to know what to do when I am ready to start my business in the future," said a recent participant. First Step FastTrac is designed for start-up and new businesses. It is a practical, hands-on program designed to help entrepreneurs gain knowledge and skills needed to create, manage, and grow a successful business.
