Course Name

Exploring Business Basics is a workshop designed for individuals who are either thinking about launching a new business or in the developmental stages. “Starting a small business can be a very challenging and exciting time.  It means developing new skills, meeting new people and building something of your own.”

The interactive three-hour workshop will explore many facets of starting a new business such as:
    *          Why do people go into business?
    *          What are the attributes of an entrepreneur?
    *          What skills do you need to run a business?
    *          What type of business is best for me?
    *          Does your idea make "market sense" and "financial sense"?
    *          What is a business plan/marketing plan?  Do I really need one?
    *          Where Do I Go for Help?"

            “At the completion of this seminar, participants will have a much better idea of
what small business ownership involves, and whether or not it’s right for them. Participants will also learn about some real tools and techniques that can be used to help evaluate their business concept.”
