Starting a business sounds like a great idea, but do you really know what it entails? There are many reasons people choose to start their own business, but to be successful, you need to enter your venture with open eyes and be ready to plan, pivot and understand your customers. If this is your first or fifth time journeying into entrepreneurship, the Larimer SBDC wants to help you establish a successful foundation during this two-hour overview.

Maybe you're sure the idea you've got will be a profitable business. Maybe your idea is a bit vague and you need help focusing. Maybe you're thinking of turning your hobby into a business. Regardless of your motivation, this class will help you discover:
  • How to define and focus your business
  • Common entrepreneurial myths, and how businesses get into trouble
  • Who and where your target market is
  • Business plan options
  • Useful resources available in the community
  • Other potential entrepreneurs to develop your network
This class is a prerequisite for start-ups to schedule free consulting sessions with the Larimer SBDC.
