The information shared constitutes of business basics, which is great for starting entrepreneurs. The lessons learned can help you set a firm foundation to build your business on and be successful.
As an attendee, you are given worksheet packets that you can fill out during the training and bring to the one-on-one consultation. The packet has questions which each business owner should consider before starting their venture: why you want to start a business, what your exit strategy will be, market research and analysis, defining your target audience, and what your strengths and weaknesses are (a SWOT analysis).
After attending Jump Start: Intro to Entrepreneurship, each attendee is welcome to sign up for a free one-on-one consultation with our full-time business consultant who will further assist to get your business off the ground.
