Business cards and a website don’t make you a legitimate business. There are steps in the registration process that vary according to your industry, your business entity type, and where your business is operating. If your business is established incorrectly, it can be expensive to fix and leave you open to financial and legal liability. Do you understand the legal and tax implications of establishing your business as an LLC? A corporation? A sole proprietor? How do you register with the Secretary of State? Do you know what an EIN is and what it means to your business? Join us for this two-hour workshop facilitated by a business attorney and an accountant as they examine the pros and cons of entity types, and explain how to register your business including the necessary forms and processes. They’ll also discuss other tips on how to avoid common pitfalls before you start your new venture. There is no single perfect business entity, but being informed will help you make a better choice for your business.

After working with emerging companies for the past 10 years to help them overcome market and business growth hurdles, Colorado Emerging Ventures (a program of Boulder SBDC) developed the TechVenture Series, which consists of a cohort program that will help accelerate the growth and development of businesses in key Colorado industry growth sectors: bioscience, IT, aerospace, clean tech and advanced manufacturing. Unless a prospective market is well-defined and sizable, putting a number on it can be challenging. An emerging market can also be very dynamic with numerous players, revenue models and conflicting information. This roundtable features a cohort style of learning, meaning no lectures, but rather, a facilitated discussion with other executives who share similar business challenges. We will have a subject matter expert on hand to lend expertise in the area of identifying and sizing market opportunities. This roundtable is a free sample of the 2016 TechVenture Series, which begins in February 26, 2016 and meets monthly for six months. This particular program is not for start-ups. It is for qualified businesses in the following industry sectors: bioscience, IT, aerospace, clean tech and advanced manufacturing. Email Sharon King at sharon.king@bouldersbdc.com for details.

Topic: Cash Flow Management
Profit does not equal cash, and for every small business cash is king. Understanding the cash flow of your business is essential to be successful. There are two ways to improve how you manage your cash flow. The first is working capital management (managing stock, managing supplies and debt recovery). The second is using cash flow forecasting. A cash flow forecast is the most important business tool for every business. The forecast will tell you if your business will have enough cash to run the business or pay to expand it. It will also show you when more cash is going out of the business, than in. In this workshop, learn five basic steps in preparing a cash flow forecast including how to forecast monthly revenue and cash needs and make use of essential financial ratios to assist in improving current cash flow. This is a perfect workshop for small business owners and managers. Manage your cash flow. Don't let it manage you! 80% of businesses fail because of cash flow problems. Make sure yours isn't one of them.

Your personal and unique presence is an important part of your business. Today, more than ever, you need to create an attitude of serving and bringing value. Express that with clarity, communicating the “why”, “how”, and “what” of your business offering your public an insight into what makes your company unique and brings value to them. Creating a two way connection with your customers is key to having them choose your company for their needs. There are two approaches to creating greater interest for your services or product: Wow, Now, How, or Hook, Look, Book. We will explore both for your business. Join this interactive and experiential workshop and find out how to make instant positive impressions and sell more by serving.

Business cards and a website don’t make you a legitimate business. There are steps in the registration process that vary according to your industry, your business entity type, and where your business is operating. If your business is established incorrectly, it can be expensive to fix and leave you open to financial and legal liability. Do you understand the legal and tax implications of establishing your business as an LLC? A corporation? A sole proprietor? How do you register with the Secretary of State? Do you know what an EIN is and what it means to your business? Join us for this two-hour workshop facilitated by a business attorney and an accountant as they examine the pros and cons of entity types, and explain how to register your business including the necessary forms and processes. They’ll also discuss other tips on how to avoid common pitfalls before you start your new venture. There is no single perfect business entity, but being informed will help you make a better choice for your business.
