The publication provides models for planning and implementing an entrepreneurship education program for adults. Chapter 1 offers an insight into entrepreneurship.

Chapter 2 considers the program planning factors specific to entrepreneurship education as follows: statement of needs for program, goals and objectives, support services and facilities, budgeting, funding, schedule or work plan, advisory committee, marketing/recruiting, and evaluation. Chapter 3 lists curriculum resources and organizations that will assist the program developer in planning and implementing an entrepreneurship program. Appendix A is a sample evaluation instrument. Appendixes B-E list additional resources intended to assist the small business owner: resources available for small business owners, Small Business Administration regional offices, small business institute programs by city and state, and small business development centers.
