Business start-up series offered

SCORE, mentors to America’s small business, in partnership with Bank of America, has introduced a new, business planning workshop series to aid start-up entrepreneurs.

The five classes will take place on Tuesday evenings in Sheboygan at the LTC facility located at 3620 Wilgus Ave. All classes will run from 6-9 p.m. with check-in at 5:30 p.m.

In light of the unemployment crisis currently looming over the American economy, many individuals are interested in the idea of small business ownership as an option.

Committed to creating one million small businesses by 2017, the SCORE/Bank of America Simple Steps for Starting Your Business Workshop Series will help entrepreneurs test a small business idea and begin to plan a start-up.

This SCORE/ Bank of America program includes a free “Start-up Basics” workshop.

These workshops focus on the “Business Concept,” “Marketing Plan,” “Financial Projections” and “Funding Sources.”

Each session includes exercises to help the entrepreneur plan for success. SCORE also includes three free and confidential mentoring sessions as part of the workshop series.

The first class, titled “Business Start-up” and led by Craig Ranger, will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 26.

The remainder of the schedule includes “Business Plan 1” with Frank Sherman (Oct. 10), “Business Plan 2” with Frank Sherman, (Oct. 24), “Health Insurance” with Dave Grunke (Nov. 7) and “Business Plan 3” with Frank Sherman (Nov. 14).

“This series will help entrepreneurs understand the crucial components of starting a business,” SCORE Chapter 28 of Southern Wisconsin Chair Mar-cia Theusch said. “Our goal is to help our community grow. Helping small business owners test their ideas and complete some initial planning for their start-up is essential to achieving success.”

Sponsored locally by SCORE Chapter 28 of Southeastern Wisconsin, the SCORE/Bank of America Simple Steps for Starting Your Business Workshop Series help entrepreneurs make a smart start.

“At the end of the five workshops, attendees will have a solid understanding of start-up basics, marketing strategy, and financials,” says SCORE CEO Ken Yancey. “This is a blended learning model bringing workshops, learning exercises and mentoring to entrepreneurs in a one-stop training program to help entrepreneurs make a smart small business start.”

Since 1964, SCORE has helped more than 9 million aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners through mentoring and business workshops.
