Starting A Business

Wed 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Topic: Start-up Assistance

Are you thinking about starting your own business? In this three-hour workshop, we will take an in-depth view of your business concept and discuss the steps to a successful start: Is there a need for your product or service? Can you make money at it? Are you the right person to bring this to market? Is this business compatible with your personal goals? What rules, laws and licensing apply to your business? We will discuss funding options for your business, basic marketing strategies, legal business structures, taxation and the nuts-and-bolts of actually launching your new venture. After attending this workshop, if you decide to go forward with your business, you will have access to a Florida SBDC Business Consultant to provide assistance (at no-cost) as you create your business plan and move toward your goals. Fee $50. Pre-registration is required. Registration ends 24 hours prior to the workshop.
