Live Online Event For Individuals Looking To Start A Small Business in 2016

Are you tossing around a business idea, but you’re just not sure if it will actually work? Or maybe you’re ready to strike out on your own, but you don’t have a killer business idea to develop. How do you know what kind of business will work best for you? How do you objectively evaluate your idea to determine if it’s sustainable, or how big it might become?

On Wednesday, February 10, Grasshopper is hosting their latest fireside chat, “Creating a Business That Makes You Money.” We are excited to co-sponsor this live, online event will feature a panel of successful business owners discussing ideas such as:

  • Choosing a business type.
  • Conducting research on the market and the competition.
  • Creating a budget.
  • Securing funding.
