May 22nd, 2019 - 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

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.

To register for either free workshop online, visit http://www.DelawareSBDC.org.  For more information, call the office at 302-856-1555 or 302-678-1555.

The Delaware Small Business Development Center, a unit of the University of Delaware Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships, is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration and in part through the State of Delaware.
