Business Technology Acceleration Program Coming to Bowman

Understanding new technologies and current online marketing strategies is crucial to maintaining and growing a successful business in this day and age.

Bowman County Development Corporation is working with Center for Technology & Business to bring the Business Technology Acceleration Program to Bowman County.

The six month program will focus on technology topics for small businesses including:

  • March 27: Online Business Reputation Management
  • April 24: Social Media for Professional Use
  • May 22: Investment in Efficienty for Businesses through Mobile Apps
  • June 26: WordPress Blogging and Website Presence
  • July 24: Virtual IT and Cloud Usage for Small Businesses
  • August 28: Mobile POS Systems and Accepting Electronic Payments

Throughout the program, participants will hear from top business and technology experts that will guide and challenge participants to take the next steps in developing strategic solutions for business growth through accelerated technology training. Participants will benefit from personalized attention and individual business analysis as well as group exercises and trainings.

The program is made possible through a USDA Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG), which focuses on business expansion and job creation. "The grant will help provide development and leadership services that often are not readily available to businesses in rural areas," said Jasper Schneider, USDA Rural Development state director. "These services go a long way in helping small business owners succeed."

All sessions will be held from 9am until noon at the Bowman Public Library and are limited to the first 12 registrants. There will also be great door prizes provided by Microsoft at each session so anyone interested should register early at or call 701-223-0707. There is a $10, non-refundable, registration fee per workshop.
