Panelists from the Small Business Development Center at Cleveland State Community College, the U.S. Small Business Administration, BrightBridge Women's Business Center, and SCORE will be available to speak with you and answer questions about entrepreneurship.
The first hour will be a question-and-answer session where experienced small business specialists will answer questions about how to start a business, how to avoid common mistakes, what preliminary steps to take before getting started and anything you've been curious to know about entrepreneurship.
Following the open Q&A, the panelists will be available to speak with individuals one-on-one about business specifics. This session is targeted toward individuals 50 years young and above who are interested in starting a small business, but everyone is welcome.
Speakers for this seminar include David Hudson, TSBDC; Jacqueline Merritt, U.S. Small Business Administration; Mary Sedrick, BrightBridge Women’s Business Center and SCORE.
