Simple small business start-up under $100: a practical roadmap
Sat, April 29, 2017, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM PDT
In this informative and hands-on two-hour small group, we will go over the fundamental elements of starting a small independent business. At the end of this workshop, you will go home with your own "business model canvas," a concise roadmap of your new business. This program focuses on achieving and enhancing your own economic self-determination in this age of political and social uncertainty through entrepreneurship, which in itself is a powerful form of creative problem-solving. We will explore ways to start a thriving and growing business with less than $100 in initial start-up costs. This workshop is ideal for low-income and working-class people with limited or no access to credit and/or banking.
You will also learn how to find your own "sparks" that energize you, and how you can harness your sparks and creative talents to supplement your income and to be service to the community.
Participants will also gain access to an exclusive online support group and ongoing email support. This is also the introductory class, prerequisite for all other programs offered by the Micro-Revolution Academy.
Cost: Sliding-scale $25 to $40, payable at class (cash only) or use "donation" feature on this website. If you are paying online you will need a debit or credit card, and Eventbrite will add an extra convenience fee.
How to register if you're paying cash at the class: This is a bit confusing but here is how. Follow these steps.
- Click on the green "Tickets" button.
- A popup will show up asking you for payment amount.
- Enter any amount between 25 and 40.
- Click "Checkout." It will take you to the credit card screen.
- Under the "Payment" there is a "Payment Method" pull down menu. Change "Credit/Debit Card" to "Pay at the door."
- Click "Pay at the door" green button. You're registered.
In order to ensure full attendance, slightly more registration spots are available here than there is room. In case it is full, those who registered most recently who are "paying at door" will be placed on waiting list. Those on waiting list will be contacted when another class is offered in the near future, usually within a month.
Please note: This is a purely educational program to provide you with skills and information you can use right away. The purpose of this workshop is for you to create your own business opportunities. We do not provide funding, microloans, or "business opportunities."
