Columbia, SC- It's an opportunity for local residents to take their creative talents and grow them into a sustainable business. Richland Library is launching a series of five Creative Entrepreneurship Master Classes, and we're accepting applications now through Sunday, August 18.

Starting in August 2019 and continuing through April 2020, selected students will complete curricula reflective of their industries and general business topics, such as Entrepreneurial Vision Boards, Business 101, Design Thinking and Financial Management 101. All of the classes are free. A complete schedule is available at

"The path to becoming an entrepreneur is often met with significant risk and capital," says Richland Library Chief Customer Officer Georgia Coleman. "We are excited to support emerging businesses, so they can reach their full potential."

The Creative Entrepreneurship Master Classes are made possible through funding from the Richland Library Friends and Foundation Learning Centers Campaign.
