Simple Steps for Starting Your Business
Thinking about starting your own business or having trouble getting it off the ground? Join us for Simple Steps for Starting Your Business, a five-session series starting Wednesday, February 13 at 6 pm. The series, co-sponsored by Fairfield County SCORE and Greenwich Library's Peterson Business series, is designed to help you avoid start-up pitfalls and put you on the road to success.
This workshop will help participants define and evaluate ideas, develop a marketing strategy, identify the best ways to fund the startup. Participants will also learn to turn ideas into action with tools and templates, get useful and helpful mentoring sessions as well as connect with other entrepreneurs. The first session will cover what starting a small business is all about - the challenges, the opportunities, the requirements and the choices. Sessions two through five lead participants through steps to build a business plan while minimizing mistakes and maximizing growth and profit potential.
All presentations are given by senior SCORE mentors with proven track records of success. SCORE mentors will be available for one-on-one counseling. Advance registration is required.
