A brand new Co.Starters cohort will be starting on Feb. 13. The Co. Starters class is sponsored by the Rural Business Training Center (RBTC) founded by Demopolis native Aliquippa Allen.

Co.Starters Core is a cohort-based program that equips entrepreneurs of all kinds with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to turn ideas into action. Over the term, participants develop and fine-tune their ideas and leave the program with a deeper understanding of creating a sustainable venture.

During the last graduation ceremony, Co.Starters CEO Jose Alfaro said Co.Starters has reached nearly 28,000 people who have graduated from the program since its inception in 2010. The program has crossed into 30 states and empowers individuals to take their ideas and move forward with them.
