SCORE Webinar: Startup Basics: Are You Ready to Start?

The SCORE Webinar Startup Basics: Are You Ready to Start? by Bonnie Copeland will take place Wednesday, January 18, 2023 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

A great idea is not enough to ensure business success! This, the first workshop in the SCORE Simple Steps series, can help you analyze your idea and decide whether and how to proceed. We’ll provide an overview of the skills and tools needed to start and run a successful business along with the importance of laws, licenses, taxes, and business planning. You’ll explore the key factors that influence start-up success and begin to test your business idea against them. This workshop will provide you with solid actions that get you on the path towards a successful business!

Beware…there will be homework, but you’ll have a chance to sign up with your own SCORE mentor for help!
This is the first in a series of 3 Startup Basics workshops that follow the SCORE Simple Steps Workbook and can be taken in any order:

  • Workshop #1 – Are You Ready to Start?
  • Workshop #2 – Great Idea! Now What?
  • Workshop #3 – Finances…and Next Steps!

You will receive the link to the workbook when you register…please print it out before class!
