Location: Third Floor - SJPL Works

Session 1: Start-Up Basics

This introductory workshop focuses on the basics of testing a business idea and identifying the key factors that influence startup success. Startup Basics provides an overview of the skills and tools needed when deciding to start a business. In this session, clients learn about the advantages and disadvantages of owning a business, the most profitable form for their business, and the fundamentals of formation, organization, marketing, cash flow and funding sources.

SCORE presents a five-part series of pre-business workshops to help participants reach a “go or no-go” decision for a start-up. The content presented is designed to work in conjunction with mentoring and includes homework for participants to complete between each workshop. The program is not designed to provide all of the information needed to start a business, but rather to help you decide whether you are ready to take the next step towards becoming an entrepreneur.
