Free training program designed to help Dallas small businesses grow and thrive

Capital One Bank today announced it is accepting applications for its Getting Down to Business small business development program in Dallas. The free, seven-month program begins May 17.

Created by Capital One Bank, Getting Down to Business addresses the core needs of a small business. The program offers qualified business owners an opportunity to grow their businesses by increasing their knowledge about credit, budgeting, marketing, business plans, financing, accounting best practices, networking, insurance and much more. The program includes a matched savings component up to $2,000 that the business owners can use for operations, staffing or purchase of supplies — upon completion of the program. In addition, participants are paired with knowledgeable professionals and volunteers who serve as mentors during the class sessions and for a year following the completion of program period.

Getting Down to Business debuted in 20112, and the first two classes have yielded tremendous success stories such as an inventor whose product is now on store shelves; a homemaker with a tasty chili recipe who caught the attention of a national supermarket chain; and several other business owners who credit their growth to Getting Down to Business.

The program’s 13-course, in-depth curriculum was developed by Capital One bankers and local partners that include Money Management International, ACCION Texas;  City of Dallas Economic Development;  North Texas SBDC; SCORE and El Centro College.

“Through an integrated approach that we call ‘Investing for Good,’ Capital One Bank orchestrates the delivery of core banking services along with specialized community development, philanthropic and volunteer support to generate lasting, local community impact and valuable business results,” said Capital One Bank Dallas Market President Kent Eastman. “The Getting Down to Business program is a great example of how we bring Investing for Good to life in Dallas.”

The upcoming Getting Down to Business classes will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every other Thursday beginning May 9, at Capital One Bank’s Gaston Branch, 4111 Gaston Ave., Dallas, Texas, 75204.

The program will be limited to 15 participants selected through an application and interview process.  Applications are available online at www.cybergrants.com/capitalone/GDTBDallas.  For additional information about the program and the curriculum, call 214-855-1683. The deadline to submit applications is 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 23.
