Basin Business Advisors Program is offering a free workshop for budding entrepreneurs in Castlegar.
The Me Inc. workshop will take place on Thursday, March 10 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Castlegar Chamber of Commerce.
The workshop will provide useful information for anyone who would like to launch a start-up or buy an existing business, like how to get started and common pitfalls and motivations.
“Our goal is to help people go into a new business venture prepared — understanding different business models and legal structures, so they can choose the one that’s right for them,” explained BBA program manager Will Nixon. “We also talk about completing market research and a business plan, in order to have a good sense of whether a business will succeed.”
The Basin Business Advisors Program regularly offers Me Inc. workshops in communities across the Columbia Basin region. In addition to the Castlegar session, the same workshop will also be presented in the following communities: Winlaw (March 22), Nelson (March 23), Trail (April 14) and Kaslo (April 19).
Advance registration is required. To sign up for a workshop visit bbaprogram.ca or call 250-489-4356.
