Do you have what it takes to run a small business?

At one time or another, almost everyone has had the idea of starting their own business. What separates the successful businesses from the ones that crash and burn is the work done to realistically determine if the business will succeed.  

This workshop will guide you through the early stages of the entrepreneurial process.  It will also introduce you to the tools you’ll need to give your business the best chance to succeed.

  • Learn whether you have the traits to be a business owner and make your idea work
  • Assess the feasibility of your particular business idea  for the market you’re after
  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses and how they fit with business ownership
  • Get a real-world overview of market research, business planning, and financial projections

Don't miss this opportunity to learn the different aspects of entrepreneurship and how you can create and establish successful new ventures.
