9:15 AM – 10:00 AM                 Why do you need a business plan? (presented by Business Development Assistance Group)

Many people mistakenly believe that having a general business idea in their mind is as effective as writing a business plan. In reality, writing a business plan is essential to starting a business on the right path.  Think of it as a roadmap for the future of your business. Just as every business is different, every business plan is different.  This session will teach you the fundamental elements that need to be in your business plan.

10:15 AM – 11:00 AM              Marketing your business (presented by SCORE)

How can you cost-effectively market your business? Learn how to develop a marketing plan, define your target customers, use social media to market, do customer profiling, brand your company and other effective ways to market your business.

11:15 AM – 12:00 PM              Financing your business (presented by the WACIF)

If getting a small business loan from a traditional bank is not an option for your business, then consider a community-based micro lender.  Micro lenders are your best option when you need a smaller loan.  Learn about micro loans and see how they can help your business grow.

No fee. Advance registration is required.
