“101” for Hopeful Small Business Start-Ups
Small businesses make a up a large portion of our area’s big economic picture. Sometimes they even provide “fuel” and sustenance to larger organizations and businesses. So, the Chamber developed a series of programs aimed at small business success.
Called “Operation Business Bootstrap,” this free-to-the-public resource series includes a workshop, Small Business Start-Up: 101. The workshop, to be held next Wednesday, July 7, provides help for would-be small business owners with information on starting a business.
Presentations from local experts at the July 7th workshop will address:
- “How to form your corporation,” by Evan Marques, Eisenhower and Carlson law firm
- “Common office set-up/start-up mistakes to avoid,” by Petra Perkins from Corporate FrameWorx
- “Insurance needs of new businesses,” by Steve Thomason from Tom Taylor Insurance
