Take the first step in becoming your own boss.
The University of Houston-Victoria Small Business Development Center will present the free seminar "Business Start-Up Basics" from 10 a.m. to noon on June 5 at the SBDC office, 3402 N. Ben Wilson St.
"If you've ever thought about starting your own business and working for yourself, this is a great chance to find out how the SBDC can help you make that dream a reality," SBDC Director Joe Harper said.
The seminar will offer an overview of what's required to start a business. The event will cover topics like how to determine if a business idea is feasible, how to create a business plan and what financing options are available to get a business going.
Perspective entrepreneurs can sign up to be SBDC clients at the event. The center's business counselors work with clients one-on-one to help perspective business owners and operators in a variety of business situations. Many services are available free of charge.
Space in the June 5 workshop is limited, so participants are asked to register in advance by calling the SBDC at 877-895-7232 or 361-575-8944. Walk-ins will be accepted as space allows.
The center plans to offer two similar seminars in July. The SBDC also offers free online business classes at www.sbdcvictoria.com.
