Business Smart Start is an introduction to owning your own business. Topics covered include deciding on a legal entity structure, basic accounting and tax issues, steps you need to take for permits and licensing, steps to writing a business plan and basics of marketing and market research. We cover the nine steps to market research to determine if your business idea makes sense. Class is for individuals in business, thinking of starting a business even if it might be years in the future. The class is 3.0 hours long so these topics will only be briefly covered. Upon completing the class you will have the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of our professional business advisors. Cost is $20 per company if you register everyone at one time for up to four company members. Note: The Roanoke Regional Chamber of Commerce is our financial host. The registration fees are allocated to RRSBDC programming.
