Accelerators aren’t just for startups anymore

Wilmington's 3E Marketing Solutions is offering classes for entrepreneurs in what it's calling a small business accelerator.

3E Marketing Solutions recently launched the P.E.R.K. Academy (Presence, Engagement, Relevance and Knowledge), and the classes are taught by local experts, according to a release.

3E Marketing cofounder Donna Duffy, whom the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce named Business Woman of the Year in 2015, said she put the academy together because she has consistently seen entrepreneurs struggle with organizing different aspects of running a business.

The classes do come at a price. They’re $50 for nonmembers and $25 for members, and monthly membership costs $37 (and includes a free class).

Here’s what P.E.R.K. has on tap:

  • March 29, 9-11 a.m. “The Why, What and How of Business Formation,” by Chantal Towles
  • March 31, 9:30-11:30 a.m. “Create Videos Like a Pro With Your iPhone/Android—Part I,” by Gordon DelGiorno
  • April 5, 9-11 a.m. “Learning How to Master Your Monkey Chatter,” by Carolyn Bennett-Sullivan
  • April 7, 9-11 a.m. “How to Write a Press Release,” by Dana Dobson
  • April 12, 9-11 a.m. “7 Changes of Work/Life Balance All Entrepreneurs Struggle With,” by Allison T. Moore
  • April 21, 9-11 a.m.  “How to Know if a Virtual Office is Right for Your Local Presence and Worldwide Reach,” by Lori Davis

They’ll all be held at 3E’s offices at 1201 N. Orange St.
