Aspiring entrepreneurs can take advantage of small development resources starting Saturday, April 6. There will be free small business development workshops. Operation Hope and SunTrust are the sponsors. They will be held at 1350 Concourse Way located inside SunTrust Financial Confidence Center and the start time is 9:00 a.m.
Judie Hayes, HOPE financial wellbeing coach said,”The small business development workshop expands on Operation Hope’s mission to provide economic opportunities to underserved communities through economic empowerment. We help make the dream of business ownership become a reality.”
“We cover the advantages and disadvantages of business ownership, questions to consider when you are trying to decide whether or not to start a business, what you will need to get started, business entities, components of business plans, and access to capital. We provide a thorough overview of starting a business and keeping it in business,” added Hayes.
This course is also the prerequisite into the Entrepreneurial Training Program which is a 12-week program designed to get you ready to open your business.
