SBDC: How to Start a Small Business (Live Webinar)
Apr 10 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

How to Start a Small Business

It’s back to basics! If you want to start a business but don’t know where to begin, then this class is for you. This class will address many of the questions you should ask yourself before beginning the process of starting a new business.

Why start a small business?
• What are your goals?
• What are your strengths?
• What are your values?
• How do you work?

The workshop will also cover the process of starting a business:

Starting a business
• How to analyze feasibility of your idea
• How to prepare business plan
• Selecting legal form
• Sources of capital
• Business licenses and permits
• Sources of information


 

Materials, services or products offered by providers to SBDC clients are available as a resource for you to locate professionals who can assist you with business concerns. Making these sources available to you does not imply or constitute a recommendation or endorsement by the SBDC, but is only intended to be a convenience for you. You must perform your “due diligence” by interviewing the individuals or companies to determine if they meet your needs. If you do retain their services, be sure to obtain your agreement in writing: who is responsible for what; what work is to be performed; what is not included; what is the cost.
The Collin SBDC at Collin College is a member of the North Texas SBDC Network. Funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Hosted by the Dallas College and nationally accredited by the Association of SBDCs.
