Oakley Entrepreneur Program

The City of Oakley understands the importance of our small business community.  The growth of Oakley’s small businesses and entrepreneurs is vital to future local jobs, goods and services.  Oakley is home to over 700 businesses, with over 90% having fewer than 5 employees.  Almost half of these businesses are home-based.  The Oakley Entrepreneur Program is designed to strengthen the small business and entrepreneur community and  help them grow and expand in Oakley.

Oakley Entrepreneur Center Workshops & Events

Oakley’s Economic Development program is planning a full schedule of events for the recently opened Oakley Entrepreneur Center.  

On Tuesday, August 27th the Entrepreneur Center will host a workshop entitled “More Sales for Your Business.”  Are you are a business owner that is so focused on operations that you don’t focus enough on sales?  Are you putting your sales in the hands of others?  Are you struggling to figure out what exactly your customer wants?

This course will teach you to develop a mindset of business development and help to train and develop your staff.  The course will take you through different customer types, sales, scheduling, prospecting and more.  If you need to increase sales in your business, this workshop is for you!

The workshop will be offered at the Entrepreneur Center on Tuesday, August 27th, from 6:30 till 8:30 pm.  Cost to attend is $20 and payment can be made at the Oakley City Hall to reserve a space.  Please call (925) 625-7006 to reserve your space.
