POWELL, Wyo. — Area residents who have an idea for starting a business can get free information, and established entrepreneurs can get personal help improving their business plans in a three-day Business Jump Start coming to Lovell in May.
Those who just want to explore the notion of starting a business are invited to attend the first evening session Monday, May 5, free of charge. They’ll get an overview of what’s involved in owning a business so they can better decide if it’s the right choice for them. If they’re ready to explore the next step after the 6-9 p.m. session, they’re invited to enroll in the two subsequent sessions, which follow a building-block approach to starting or growing a business.
Topics include an orientation, business intelligence, structure, operations, marketing, finance, customer service, human resources and launching a business.
The class is designed to help participants understand the dynamics that support business growth and greater profitability. The interactive program provides participants practical instruction, tools and strategies to structure for success in business.
Experts from across the region serve as teachers and advisers, helping participants through each step as they develop and refine their individual business plans.
The second and third sessions meet from 6-9 p.m. Friday, May 9, and from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at the Lovell Incubator, 142 East Third St.
Cost is $99 per person, but reduced to $50 for multiple enrollees from the same company.
