Business Ownership Frameworks to Reduce Risk

Jumping into entrepreneurship? It doesn’t have to be a leap of faith.

If you’re an experienced business professional who’s tired of the corporate world, this event is your first step to becoming your own boss. You’ll learn how to leverage your expertise and leadership skills to launch your own profitable business.

Have you wanted more autonomy, independence, pride, or meaning in your work?

Business ownership is a great way to reignite your passion for the work that you do, but everyone knows that you can’t just dive in. There’s a lot of research and learning involved in launching a new business, and most people don’t know where to begin. Starting a new business on your own can be daunting—and you will most likely come away with more questions than answers.

You may be wondering:

  • What are my options for business ownership?

  • What is the best business or business model for my experience and skill set?

  • Should I start a business from scratch, buy an existing business, or license a business?

  • How can I launch a recession-resistant business?

  • Where do I begin with financing?

  • How much money do I really need to start a new business?

  • How can I reduce my risk when starting a new business?

  • Which business models have been proven to work in my location and this economy?
