'Simple Steps for Starting Your Business'  


Broward SCORE'S 'Simple Steps' start-up business workshops help you prepare a blueprint for making your dreams for a business come true

Starting your own business is a tough decision!
You do not have to do it alone.

SCORE has developed a 5 part workshop series that will take you through the basics of starting up a business. If you are willing to roll up your sleeves & work with the instructors you'll come away with a good understanding of the specific challenges & opportunities you will face.
