Event description

Description

Have a great idea for a product or business? Not sure how to get started? Join Startup 425, the King County Library System, and seasoned professionals from SCORE for a series of workshops focused on bringing your ideas to reality, from developing a business plan to crafting a financing and marketing strategy.

Each session will focus on a different aspect of the startup process, and participants may choose to attend one, multiple, or all sessions, depending on individual needs and interests. Light dinner included!

Ultimately, participants will exit this series with the skills and tools necessary to start or grow a business, and information on the resources available to them to assist in further refining business plans and strategies, exploring and pitching to financing partners, and marketing a product or service.

Ideation (Wednesday, 9/20): Develop and assess your idea to determine whether it might be viable as a product. Discuss the ideation process with a panel of entrepreneurs and businessowners.

Licensing ( Wednesday, 9/27): Learn about business structures and licensing structures under Washington State and city requirements.

Business Plans (Wednesday, 10/4): Understand the business planning process and what elements are crucial when developing your plan.

Financing (Wednesday, 10/11): Explore your financing options. Which option might make the most sense for your business?

Marketing (Wednesday, 10/18): Define your target customer and how to reach them. Can social media be an effective tool?
