The Microbusiness Enterprise Corporation of Ascension (MBECA) program, in partnership with the Donaldsonville Downtown Development District, announces the start of its next Entrepreneurship Course in historic Donaldsonville.

The course will begin on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at the Lemann Memorial Center in Donaldsonville. The program begins at 6 p.m.

Classes are tentatively scheduled every Thursday until completed, but this will be determined more clearly once it is clear that attendees find this day of week appropriate.

MBECA asks to please spread the word that all are welcome to attend the program. The first 30 minutes of the program will include an orientation before getting started.

MBECA would like all participants to be certified before they attend however participants can come to learn more about the program during the first 30 minutes. Participants can learn more or get certified by visiting MBECA’s website at

Participants should click on the "Certification" link and go to the Louisiana Economic Development Page. Also, it is encouraged for everyone to invite more attendees. This is a free process, but it needs to get done before anyone goes further.
