VAN WERT — Successfully launch your new business by completing the “Starting Right” class developed by the Business Enterprise Center at Wright State. This two-hour class delivers much of the basic information necessary for successful business ownership.
Each participant receives a “Starting Right” packet, including legal, record-keeping, tax and general business information. A business plan questionnaire and cash flow projection worksheet is also included. During the class, a business counselor provides an overview of the information as well as instruction on the basics of business ownership. Cost of the class is $35 per business payable the night of the class.
Those attending the class are not expected to complete all of the paperwork on their own. A business counselor is available to offer guidance through this process and answer questions as necessary. Personal business counseling services are free and no limit is placed on the number of appointments. Business counselors tackle problems such as business financing for start-ups, expansions, acquisitions, business management issues, tax and record-keeping issues, etc.
The class meets in the Van Wert Business Enterprise Center at 147 E. Main St. from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday. You can register by calling either the Business Enterprise Center at Wright State 419-586-0355 or the Van Wert Economic Development Office 419-238-2999.
