Camden, NJ – Starting a business in South Jersey can be difficult, but thanks to the Ocean First Foundation and its support of the Latin American Economic Development Association, Inc. (LAEDA), it got a lot easier.

“We’ve been partnering with Ocean First for a number of years.  Their continued support allows us to offer our programming not only in Camden but throughout South Jersey,” said Raymond L. Lamboy, President & CEO.  “We are proud of this partnership and looking forward to expanding on it in the future.” 
The Entrepreneurial Development Training Program (EDTP) has been training individuals from to start businesses for over 30 years.  EDTP is a nine-week 75-hour training course that is conducted two times per year.  Entrepreneurs learn about all aspects of starting and running a business and finish the course with a completed business plan.
In 2012, LAEDA expanded its program area to begin offering training and counseling in Burlington, Atlantic, Gloucester and Cumberland counties.  Beyond the Entrepreneurial Development Training Program, LAEDA offers one night seminars, five week courses, and business counseling through the LAEDA Women’s Business Center.
