The Illinois Metro East Small Business Development Center at SIUE, in partnership with the city of Highland and SCORE, will present a learning opportunity for budding entrepreneurs and future business owners.
The event will take place 3 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, May 14, at Latzer Memorial Public Library, 1001 Ninth St., Highland.
The "Starting a Business in Illinois" workshop is being held for the first time in Highland. Attendees will learn how to:
- develop a viable business plan;
- properly register business with state and/or local agencies; and
- explore business financing options.
In addition, attendees will get the opportunity to ask questions about a specific business idea and any next steps in their startup process. This course is highly recommended for anyone developing a new for-profit business concept.
There is a $10 register fee to cover administrative cost. Registrants should anticipate paying by check or cash at the door. (Checks should be made payable to "SIUE.")
