In partnership with UCEDC, 76 Forward presents “Entrepreneurship Essentials”, the first in a series of monthly free business and financial literacy workshops. 76 Forward supports these agencies and organizations that share our commitment to small business growth.
Starting a small business is a rewarding but risky proposition. Before you hang the “Open for Business” sign or get in too deep in your new venture, you should take an honest look at your preparedness to succeed.
This free workshop, a preview of our Entrepreneurship 101 course, will guide you through the assessment process and introduce you to the tools you’ll need to start and grow your business. You’ll be better prepared to:
- Determine if you have the traits necessary to be a business owner
- Identify your strengths and weaknesses and how they fit with business ownership
- Assess the feasibility of your business idea within your targeted market
- Conduct market research, business planning, and financial projection
