Starting a Business Workshop - Petoskey

The Starting a Business Workshop is intended for individuals in the beginning stages of starting a business, in need of accessing capital, or simply considering self-employment. This introductory session helps aspiring entrepreneurs assess their abilities to lead and manage a company, as well as evaluate market and sales potential for their products/services. This comprehensive 2.5-hour workshop also incorporates the SBDC’s fundamental Writing a Business Plan workshop and fully covers topics such as determining concept feasibility, startup costs, financing options, the basics of business planning, along with other necessary resources to launch. This workshop features instruction by Certified SBDC Small Business Consultant, Samantha Reis, and is a pre-requisite to meeting with an SBDC consultant one-on-one. There is no cost to attend; however, pre-registration is required. The workshop will be held in Room C of the Michigan Works! building, located at 2240 Mitchell Park Drive in Petoskey. There is a parking lot next to the building. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to sign-in and fill out our attendee record form. For more information, contact the SBDC at or 231.929-5060.
