(SARASOTA, Fla., April 6, 2016) Manasota SCORE’s updated Simple Steps for Starting Your Business workshop series will be presented at the Robert L. Taylor Community Center.
The series begins with a free introductory session, offered on April 9 and April 16. It presents information on business structures and critical success factors, along with an introduction to a one-page business canvas (a consolidated, flexible business plan overview) that the workshops will cover in depth.
The four building block workshops, which cost $25 each, are being offered in a 25% discounted package, for a $75 fee, to anyone who signs up and pay for all four sessions by April 30.
The building block workshops provide information on a range of business topics and the opportunity for participants to explore their business idea using the business canvas approach. These workshops are: Your Business Concept (April 30), Marketing Plan (May 14), Financial Projections (June 4) and Key Partners & Funding Sources (June 18).
This workshop schedule provides time for participants to work between sessions with a SCORE mentor to develop their business canvas.
A final session will be scheduled to provide an opportunity for those who have attended the building block workshops to practice pitching their 1-page business canvas to a panel of SCORE experts who will offer feedback and business coaching.
The workshop in this series will be held from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at 1845 34th St., Sarasota, FL 34234.
