“This workshop is highly recommended for veterans and military families interested in determining the feasibility of their business idea, planning to start or have recently started a small business, seeking a small business loan, or wanting to learn more about business planning,” said Assistant Director of Southeastern’s SBDC Sandy Summers. “Special focus will be placed on financing for veteran-owned businesses.”

Summers said topics of discussion include writing a business plan, sources of funds for start-up and expansion, small business resources, and required licenses.

There is no cost to attend the event; however, pre-registration is preferred, as seating is only guaranteed for registered attendees.
