ENTREPRENEURS, GET STARTED ON YOUR BUSINESS IDEA BY REGISTERING FOR THE
FREE ‘HOW TO START A BUSINESS’ WORKSHOPS IN MAY
You have an idea for what you think could be a money-making business, but do you know what steps to take to make that dream a reality? The Delaware Small Business Development Center (SBDC) can put you on the path to success with the free “How to Start a Business” seminars coming up during the month of May. They will be held on:
- Wednesday, May 22 at the SBDC office located Georgetown from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; and
- Thursday, May 23 in Room 220 at Kent County Levy Court building, 555 Bay Road in Dover, 9 a.m. to 12 noon.
Though the workshops are free of charge, attendees must preregister online by visiting the website: http//www.DelawareSBDC.org.
“Once entrepreneurs take the class, the important next step is to register for our free one-on-one business advising,” said David Root, Director of the Sussex County SBDC. “Advisors can assist with market research, writing a business plan or marketing plan and for those who need financing, help developing a loan package.”
Workshop topics will include:
- Why business plans and market research are imperative;
- Whether you have the right industry experience for the business you want to start;
- Risks involved in starting that business;
- Types of business structures and how they are formed;
- Determining whether you have adequate capital to get started;
- Learning how to apply for a loan and what your down payment should be;
- Developing a business timeline; and
- How to register for free, one-on-one business advising with the SBDC.
