SCORE/SBDC business workshop to be held in Red Bud for first time


The Illinois Metro East Small Business Development Center at SIUE, in partnership with Southwestern Illinois College and the Southwestern Illinois Chapter of SCORE, will present a learning opportunity for budding entrepreneurs and future business owners.

The SBDC’s “Starting a Business in Illinois” workshop will be held for the first time in Red Bud, on Tuesday, Aug. 9, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at Southwestern Illinois College, 500 W. South Fourth St., Room 123.

The workshop will instruct attendees on 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. (The SBDC will be unable to process a payment by credit/debit card at this workshop site.) Registrants should anticipate paying by check or cash at the door. Checks should be made payable to “SIUE.”

Participants can register here.
