 Is Starting a Business Right for You? 

Do you dream of starting a business? Do you know what it takes to turn that dream into a reality? It takes courage but it also requires knowledge.  Let us help you acquire the knowledge to make your dreams of business ownership come true.

Treasure Coast SCORE'S 'Simple Steps' for Starting a Business program helps you prepare a blueprint for achieving your dreams for business ownership.

Simple Steps Start is a series of four modules that will give you the necessary tools to start a business.  The program is designed to give busy, aspiring entrepreneurs the skills to create and validate a business idea and to create a business plan to implement that idea.
