How To Start Your Own Business – Orange and Greene Counties

Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Thinking about starting a small business?   Have you already started and realize you may have missed a few things?   This workshop is for you!   We review the steps to a successful start, the registrations and regulations, and the components of sound business planning, including financial projections.

You have two options for attending this workshop:

  • Attend the live/in-person workshop at the Gordon Building in Orange County
  • Attend a live/online workshop at the Visitor Center in Greene County where you can view the live class (taking place in Orange) online via a large screen along with fellow attendees.  There will be opportunities to ask questions of the instructor in real time.  PLEASE NOTE:  there are stairs at this location and, therefore, no wheelchair accessibility; if wheelchair accessibility is required, please consider attending the live/in-person event in Orange.

After attending this class, those interested in moving forward with steps to open a business are eligible for business advising appointments with SBDC Business Advisors for help focusing on concept development; business profile; feasibility studies; business plans, including financial projections; and/or assistance in developing a viable funding strategy for the new business.

The workshop at the Orange County location is brought to you jointly by:

the Central Virginia SBDC , Orange County Economic Development Office, Orange County Chamber of Commerce, and the Orange Downtown Alliance

The workshop at the Greene County location is brought to you jointly by:

the Central Virginia SBDC and the Greene County Economic Development & Tourism Office
