Creating a Business Idea that Works

 

Many entrepreneurs have a business idea and passion for it. But not nearly as many understand or have the research to prove the idea will work.

 

The goal of this course is to provide you with the tools to analyze your customers, industry, and competitors. You will leave the course with an action plan that can determine if your idea is the right market opportunity.

 

During this course, you will:

 

  • Identify the market problem your business will solve
  • Define your target customers, industry, and competitors
  • Create research plans to better understand your customers, industry, and competitors
  • Develop a unique value proposition (UVP) statement
  • Draft your business concept statement

Organizer

NYC Department of Small Business Services

The OJT program is an employer-based program, where eligible businesses that qualify can train and onboard eligible new employees. 

The program is a training reimbursement grant that covers up to 70% of wages for up to the first 280 hours of on-the- job training for new hires.  

The program’s mission is to serve those NYC residents that are less likely to obtain employment, by obtaining new skills through the training provided by eligible business participants, which will lead to permanent employment. 

For further information, please contact David Cuevas | Program Manager at 212-513-9206 or email at DCuevas@sbs.nyc.gov.
