Business Start Up:

Have an Idea? Turn it into a business!

Starting a successful business requires more than a great idea, conviction and ceaseless energy to make it happen. A solid plan and the ability to act on it are equally important.

In this workshop, the experts at SCORE share startup success secrets, including ways to refine your business idea – and then turn your "concept" into a viable business. These same principles apply for early stage businesses which are ready to break out!

What you will learn:

  • How to develop your idea
  • Learn about business structures & financing
  • Managing your money
  • Begin building a plan
