Starting a Business: What You Need to Know

If you are thinking about starting a new business or have recently started one, this is a valuable workshop for you. Starting a Business: What You Need to Know cuts through the confusion and chaos of what you need to do and think about to start a business. 

In just 2 hours, you will gain a clear understanding of all the legal requirements for a start-up business, as well as actions that are simply smart to do. Some of the key topics covered include naming your business, licenses and taxes, insurance, financing sources, elements of a business plan, and marketing considerations.  You’ll also hear how SCORE can help you succeed in your new venture.

 

What You Will Learn

  • Options for starting your own business
  • The various management hats you will need to wear
  • Advantages and disadvantages of legal structures for your business
  • The major causes of business failures
  • How to avoid legal problems
  • Ways to improve your chance of success

Best of all, you’ll leave with a checklist of the 17 things you need to think about and do to be successful at establishing your business. This will be helpful to ensure a productive session with a SCORE Mentor.

 "…this workshop gave me the information I need to consider in starting my business. It gave me a starting point."  - Ryan S.
