The How to Start A Small Business Workshop will be held in the College of Business (Thurmond Building), in Room 208 on the 2nd floor. The Thurmond Building is located on the Winthrop University campus at the intersection of Park Avenue and Memorial Circle.
The workshop touches on business basics including the development of a business plan, anticipated expense and projected income, and allows for questions.
There is a $25 charge. Materials will be provided.
After the workshop, we ask that you go home and fill out as much of our Business Plan template as you can. When you have done that, you may call our SBDC office at (803) 323-2283 to schedule an appointment with a consultant for free assistance in completing the plan, as well as discussion about preparing to apply for a business loan, if you will be trying to get your business financed.
