The Rhode Island Small Business Recovery Program announced that it would be offering up to 20 programs each month in 2011 for entrepreneurs looking to gain more knowledge. The program's director, David Nash, said that small business owners would benefit from the free courses and that they would learn valuable information.

"Individuals thinking about launching a small business or current small business owners now have the opportunity to learn the essential building blocks of successful self-employment, free of charge, from leading entrepreneurs and other industry experts," said Nash in an interview with the news source.

The Rhode Island Small Business Recovery Program is made up of several different organizations, including the SEED Corp., the South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce, the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce, the Narragansett Chamber of Commerce and the Rhode Island Small Business Development Center.
