Entrepreneurial Coaching

Maryland Ag & Natural Resources Entrepreneurial
Coaching Assistance Program

Entrepreneurs are made, not born. They can be developed to their full potential when provided training, a support network, and access to resources.  Entrepreneurs are by nature individualists who want to learn from other successful entrepreneurs and peers.  But, they need to have someone designated as a sounding board for ideas, dreams, and someone who can provide a trustworthy “reality check” during the business planning process.  Working with an agricultural “entrepreneur coach,” someone who can listen and advise budding agricultural and rural entrepreneurs, is an important component of any entrepreneurship program. This coach will help strengthen the process of business planning.

Maryland Ag & Natural Resources Entrepreneurial Coaching Assistance Program provides entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a trained agriculture service provider.  The goal of coaching sessions is to sound-out business ideas or expansion plans and received realistic and timely consul on how to proceed.  The bottom line: a coach can help the entrepreneur save time and money.  To schedule an appointment with a trained Entrepreneurial Coach in person (one-on-one) use the contact information on the right side bar.
