SCORE-Greater Seattle: Small Business Essentials Workshop Series
“Preparing individuals to make the right decisions and create actionable plans when starting a small business.”
Anyone can start a small business. You don’t need a university degree or a friend who works at a bank. But you do need knowledge, a plan and hard work to get your business off the ground. Starting a business is risky if you are not prepared. SCORE’s Small Business Essentials Workshop Series was developed to help anyone who is considering starting a business get the skills and knowledge to plan and successfully start a new business.
After working with tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, SCORE has developed a precise list of decisions and plans you need to make to successfully launch a business. We have streamlined our workshops to cover these key activities so that you are prepared to accomplish them after the workshop. By reviewing your plans with SCORE mentors, they can make sure your plans are right for your market, industry and personal goals. All the workshops are about three hours in length and taught by experienced SCORE Mentors.
