SCORE Southeast Wisconsin Chapter will conduct a business workshop titled “Starting a Business? – Readiness Assessment” on Saturday, September 10, 2011. According to Albert Lo, chapter education chairman, this workshop is focused on those who are considering going into business for themselves.
Workshop leaders will discuss many of the myths and realities of being an entrepreneur and will go through a number of self evaluation tools to make sure it’s right for the attendees. Once participants know they are ready to own their own business, leaders will review a checklist of things to do before investing money in starting a business.
The workshop will be held at the Milwaukee County Research Park, 10437 Innovation Drive, Wauwatosa, in Room 121, 9 AM – 12 Noon. The fee is $35 per person, and $20 for each additional person from the same firm. Advance reservations are required for admission, and can be obtained by calling SCORE Southeast Wisconsin at 414-297-3942 or by visiting its website, ww.scoresewisconsin.org to register or for additional information about the workshop.
