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

Social Media for Business Owners

Oakley’s Economic Development program is planning a full schedule of events for the Oakley Entrepreneur Center that is scheduled to open in April.  

On Thursday, April 18th the Entrepreneur Center will host a workshop entitled “Social Media for Business Owners,” in collaboration with Los Medanos College.   In today’s technology environment, social media plays an increasingly important role.  However, many small business owners are not taking advantage of social media to increase business.  For those small business owners who have wanted to add social media for their business but don’t know how or want to learn how to do it better, this workshop is designed for them.  The workshop will be offered at the Entrepreneur Center on April 18th, from 10:00 am till noon.  Cost for the workshop is $20.00
