ENGLEWOOD — Small business owners, including aspiring entrepreneurs, can register for free classes this month at EnglewoodBlue, which opened in April.

All classes will meet at the business incubator, which is on the fourth floor of the US Bank building, 815 W. 63rd St.

The Schedule:

You Built Your Business, We'll Help You Grow It, 10 a.m.-noon Oct. 14

Presenters from Goldman Sachs will talk to business owners about programs they offer that can help them grow their business. The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses (10KSB) program is designed to help entrepreneurs increase revenues and create jobs through specialized educational curriculum, peer-to-peer learning, networking and access to capital.

The class is free and is for small businesses that have been active for a minimum of two years, have four full-time equivalent employees (including the owner) and $150,000 or more in annual gross revenues. Register online.

Business Birth: Idea to Launch, 10 a.m.-noon Oct. 15

The class will focus on saving aspiring entrepreneurs time and money as they turn their idea into a business. A seven-step plan will be highlighted to help people avoid bad investment decisions. EnglewoodBlue will explore ways for soon-to-be business owners keep their day jobs, while figuring out how to create a strong plan for approaching investors. Register online.

Taking Control of Your Credit, 10 a.m.-noon Oct. 22
