Introduction to Entrepreneurship – Salem County
Starting a small business is a rewarding but risky proposition. Before you hang the “Open for Business” sign or get in too deep in your new venture, you should take an honest look at your preparedness to succeed.
This class is a high level overview of topics covered in Entrepreneurship 101. We’ll 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 projections
Plus, there will be one hour available for assessment counseling after the workshop for those who want it.
