Essentials for Starting a Small Business - Meeting Online  

Thinking of starting a small business? Get an overview of the startup process beginning with common characteristics and attitudes of successful small business owners. The class will also explore major planning areas as a way to reduce risk in your venture. From marketing, finance, operations and writing a business plan, we’ll focus on practical steps, not only to determine the feasibility of your idea, but to set you up for future success. Explore ideas for getting customers in the door, working out your operations and procedures in advance for a flawless opening, and some key financial ideas necessary during the startup phase and in ongoing operation. You’ll leave class with numerous resources to help you fill any skill or knowledge gaps you may have discovered along the way and build upon what you have learned. Each Wednesday, you'll receive an email with links to the week's lessons and activities which you can do at your own pace. Discussions with classmates will take place on Slack, an online chat/message site. For students who prefer interacting through live video rather than text, a casual and optional weekly video conference is offered Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
