Presented In Partnership with Mercer County Office of Economic Development

Starting a small business is a rewarding but risky proposition. Before you hang the “Open for Business” sign or get in too deep into your new venture, you should take an honest look at your preparedness to succeed. This free in-person and live webinar is a preview of our Entrepreneurship 101 course and will guide you through the assessment process and introduce you to the tools you’ll need to start and grow your business. You’ll be better prepared to:

  • Determine if you have the traits necessary to be a business owner
  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses and how they fit with business ownership
  • Assess the feasibility of your business idea within your targeted market
  • Conduct market research, business planning, and financial projection

Setting up the right foundation for your startup will put it on the path to success.
