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 on Social Media (presented by Arlington Economic Development, BizLaunch)

In this digital age, social media is a cost-effective tool to market your business to potential customers.   How can you use the popular social media networks effectively?  In this session, you will learn what kinds of engaging, share-worthy content to post to social media, how to get started, and how to use a content calendar to plan your social media posts.

11:15 AM – 12:00 PM               Financing your business (presented by the Virginia Small Business Financing Authority)

Every business will eventually need financing. Bankers and other financial experts will tell you to know your financing options before you actually need it.  The VSBFA is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s economic development and business financing arm to help banks make loans to businesses.  In this session, you will learn VSBFA’s extensive portfolio of financing programs from Loan Guaranty to Child Care Financing to Cash Collateral.
