Illinois has a similar program offered by the Small Business Development
Center located at Western Illinois University and other universities around
the state. Dan Vorhiis, has several classes throughout the year that are
wonderful. He discusses "Everything you every wanted to know about starting
a small business" He talks about Business Planning, Marketing, Finances
and Financing.

I would think that most states have a program like this, the Business and
Community Chief for Rural Developement / USDA could put you in touch with
the program for your state.
