“We’re glad to provide business guidance and contacts so these artists and artisans who are growing small businesses or who are home-based can showcase and sell their artwork,” said Fran Verotsky, director of HACC Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies. “With the success of our Artisans Marketplace program, we’ve been able to expand to more locations within the midstate. We believe, in time, these artisans will develop a solid customer base.”
The Institute of Entrepreneurial Studies developed the marketplaces to provide business planning and execution to help local craftspeople launch their small business. The institute also operates marketplaces in Perry County and in York.
