Business Planning for Success: Smart Start Your Business

Tue 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Topic: Start-up Assistance

The cost for this workshop is $47 per business (not per attendee). 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, take a 360◦ view of your business concept and discuss the steps to a successful start. Additional people from the same business may attend at no charge with a paying business person. • Is there a need for your product or service? • Can you make money at it? • Are you and your team the right people to bring this to market? • Is this business compatible with your personal goals? • What rules, laws and licensing apply to my business? We will also discuss funding options for your business, basic marketing strategies, and the nuts-and-bolts of actually launching your new venture. After Smart Start, if you decide to go forward with your business, you will have free access to an SBDC business advisor to provide assistance as you create your business plan and move toward your goals. We will provide you with worksheets to take home and begin the process. Class held at the Small Business Development Center. If you wish to bring others that will be assisting you in your business, you may do so at no charge—simply call the SBDC at 541-956-7494 so we can register them in the no charge class with the paying client.
