The content is for people wondering if they have what it takes to start their own business, or those who have entrepreneurial ideas but need assistance or financing to make them happen. Although the program is free, space is limited and preregistration is required.
“We are now advising clients with a variety of business ideas, such as manufacturing, daycare centers, marketing and social media consulting, service businesses, food trucks and retail shops,” said David Root, director of the Small Business Development Center. “No matter what you plan to start, the webinar will help you determine whether you are ready for what you need to do to move forward.”
The workshop is intended to help participants decide if they are conceptually, physically and financially ready to start a business. Workshop topics will include exploring whether a particular business is the right one to start; risks involved in starting a business; types of business formation; licenses, legal and accounting issues; how to develop a business plan; creating a business timeline; and what business resources are available.
