Starting Your Own Business 

Starting your own business can be challenging, especially for first time business owners. If you’re ready to take the next step and explore turning your idea into a real business opportunity, then this is the workshop for you. Generally this is delivered as an in person 3 to 4 hour workshop with a fee of $129.00. However, based upon the current health pandemic and practicing social distancing for the next few months we are pleased to offer abbreviated 90 minute ZOOM (video conferencing – with a telephone call in number as well) workshops/webinars at no cost. By joining this webinar you’ll gain some practical tips/steps in starting your own business and have a chance to have some of your questions answered. Following the session, you’ll receive some additional resources to help you in the process.

Speaker(s): Laurel Butler, VtSBDC Business Advisor

Fee: No Cost
