Webinar series helps ‘StartUp’ small businesses
STARKVILLE, Miss. -- With the right resources and partnerships, now is not too late for aspiring entrepreneurs to StartUp their small businesses in 2020.
StartUp is a series of online courses designed to provide the education and training needed to start a business in 30 days. To access the free virtual sessions, participants need about three hours a week and a smartphone, tablet or computer. Faculty and staff with Mississippi State University Extension will host the seminars beginning Nov. 30.
During the webinars, participants will learn how to create a small business plan, conduct a market analysis, create and maintain a webpage, and promote their business on social media.
“This series is for anyone looking to transform their idea into an actual small business,” said Extension instructor Terence Norwood. “You’ll learn the language, find out where to go when you have questions and develop a network of support with Extension community development specialists. This series will serve as a front door to additional MSU Extension programs that promote small business development, sustainability, renewal and growth.”
