Starting a Business

Thu 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Topic: Start-up Assistance

In this two-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. This is a rare "no-charge" event, but space is limited and advance registration is required.

Speaker(s): Diana Jernigan, Business Consultant, Florida SBDC at UWF/FWB

Co-Sponsor(s): Destin Chamber of Commerce

The first 100 registrations in 2022 for our Starting a Business workshops across the Panhandle will not be charged the regular $50 fee compliments of our partner, Community Bank. Please sign up only if you know you will be able to attend on this day. If you sign up for this but cannot attend for whatever reason without letting us know 48 hours in advance, we cannot offer the attendance to you again for free; you will need to pay the regular $50 attendance fee. This is a special promotion, and after the first 100 attendees for 2022, we will re-instate the $50 fee for this informative workshop.
