Subject: Grant $ available for Starting Your Own Business @ Clackamas Community College’s, Small Business Development Center

Dear Veteran,

On March 6th, theSmallBusinessDevelopmentCenter is starting its highly recognized Small Business Greenhouse Program. This 16 week class is a flagship course for anyone wanting to start a business, has started a business but needs the foundation to move forward, or for the person who has always had an idea about a business and does not know where to start. The Greenhouse program has been the driving force behind multiple successful business startups and is considered to be the best learning investment for budding entrepreneurs in the Portland Metropolitan area.

In addition to the weekly 3 hour class (6:30 – 9:30 pm Tuesday), each class participant has the option for 2 hours of counseling a month. Counseling sessions are specific to the individual business, and are considered to be as valuable as class participation.

Enclosed is a flyer on the class that gives you all the details of this course content, tuition, schedule and comments from previous students.

The normal fee for the 16-week program and counseling sessions is $495.  However, because of your Veterans status, the fee is $150.

The Greenhouse instructor is Rob Campbell. Rob is a Viet Namcombat Vet and has extensive experience with large, small, and start-up companies.  For more information contact Myrna at 503-594-0738, email:

We encourage you to think of anyone in your family, business contacts, or friends that may also benefit from this opportunity.
