Simple Steps for Starting Your Business, Workshop Series 2-5 ($150)

Starting Your Business: Is it Right for You?

Starting Your Business Workshop Series: Attend this comprehensive workshop series to help you test your new business idea and get you started on the right path. Free one-to-one counseling is also part of the workshop process.

Join us for four three-hour sessions that help you understand the basics of:

  • The concepts involved with assessing a business idea,
  • Marketing your product or service,
  • Understanding business financials and how they work, and
  • How to fund and finance your business.

Session 2: Business Concept

The first workshop focuses on your business concept and step-by-step guidance in researching your idea, your market, and your competition. At the end of the Business Concept Workshop, you are able to identify your target markets, describe your products and services, and collect key competitive information to support your feasibility plan.

Session 3: Marketing Plan

The second workshop provides you with an introduction to marketing communication methods and tools to maximize your customer reach. The discussion in the Marketing Plan Workshop covers pricing strategies, positioning, the difference between features and benefits, and different marketing strategies. At the end of this session, you will know how to outline your marketing strategy, test your marketing message, choose the right sales channel, and exercise your marketing strategy.

Session 4: Financial Projections

The third workshop uses exercises to help you better understand financial concepts. This session reviews sales and prices, financial risks and rewards, true start-up costs, ongoing operating expenses, setting benchmarks for tracking progress and the organization of all your financial information. Using a hands-on approach, you learn how to use our financial model to forecast sales revenue and build solid pro-forma financial forecasts.

Session 5: Funding Sources and Next Steps

The final workshop offers information on how to finance your small business. In this session, discussions include sources of funds, accounting the six C’s of credit, banking relations, ratio analysis, and monthly preparation and review of financial statements. A bank loan officer will give an inside view of how a banker assesses the merit of business plans and loan application. At the end of the series, you have all the tools necessary to decide whether or not to launch your small business.
