Gainesville SCORE Workshop - Simple Steps for Starting Your Business - Basics 

Is Starting a Business Right for You?

SCORE Gainesville is presenting a series of 5 workshops which help entreprenuers test their new business idea and get started on the right path. These sessions will help you understand the basics of:

  • the concepts involved with assessing a business idea,

  • marketing your product or service,

  • understanding business financials and how they work, and

  • how to fund and finance your business.

Free, one-on-one mentoring is also a part of the workshop process.

The first workshop in this series is designed to help you reach a "go" / "no go" decision on whether to pursue your opportunity. The remaining 4 sessions will be scheduled and advertised later for those who complete Session 1 with a decision to move forward.

Session 1: Start-up Basics (Free)

This introductory workshop focuses on the basics of testing your business idea and identifying the key factors that influence start-up success. Start-up Basics provides you with an overview of the skills and tools you need when deciding to start a business. In this session, you learn about: the advantages and disadvantages of owning a business, the most profitable form for your business, licensing requirements, and the fundamentals of formation, organization, marketing, cash flow and funding sources.
