Our Academy for Small Business helps you gain knowledge, power and profit.

We know that running a successful small business in Connecticut is a day-to-day challenge.  That’s why Liberty Bank created a FREE series of classes to help small business owners feel confident about unleashing their earning potential. We call it the Academy for Small Business (ASB). We think you’ll call it invaluable. 

The More You Know, The More You’ll Grow.

While the ASB offers small business owners this comprehensive training program, Liberty Bank is offering a $5,000 line of credit1 to qualifying small business owners who complete the program! The ASB is all part of Liberty Bank’s effort to support economic growth in the Connecticut communities we serve.
