You have an idea for a business. What’s the first step? Take the idea that has been forming in your head and see if you can turn it into an actual business. In this four-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. We will also provide you with worksheets to take home and begin the process. 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 to you) as you create your business plan and move toward your goals. Please arrive early to park and receive your packet. Pre-registration is required. Registration ends 24 hours prior to workshop.
