So you’ve been thinking about starting your own business. You think you’ve really discovered a niche product or service, and you’re bursting at the seams to share it with the world. But where do you begin?
Maybe you haven’t taken a single business class and you’re really not sure what owning your own company entails. What kinds of resources are available to you?
The Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center will be hosting a “Fundamentals of Writing a Business Plan” workshop on three dates — April 19, May 19 and June 16 — aimed at helping entrepreneurs get their plan down on paper.
A business plan is a document that serves your needs and the needs of others (investors, bankers, etc.) who may require information from you about your business. Workshop participants will learn what elements are commonly found in effective plans and will work on developing each of these for their own business. Assistance in the process and information on resources will be provided.
The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to noon and 6 to 9 p.m. on those days at the Oakland County Executive Office Building Conference Center, Building 41 West, 2100 Pontiac Lake Road, Waterford. Cost is $40 per person and checks should be made payable to EMU.
Pre-registration is required and space is limited, so check out the information page here.
