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 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 launching your new venture. We will also provide you with worksheets to take home and begin the process. After attending this workshop, you will have access to a Florida SBDC Business Consultant to assist you (at no cost) as you create your business plan and move toward your goals. This workshop is presented at no cost to attendees for the first quarter of 2022. Location: Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce, 309 Richard Jackson Blvd, Board Room, Panama City Beach, FL, 32407
Speaker(s): Taye Larry, Business Consultant, Florida SBDC at UWF/Panama City
