Every entrepreneur or start-up can use a little advice now and then. This is why it’s a great idea to take advantage of seminars or other means of gathering information before diving into your first business venture. Startups can require quite a bit of planning especially in regards to the business plan or model and the financial side of things.
Thankfully Charlotte is a hub of great events and information sessions for entrepreneurs and startups. Every so often I like to point out some of these events that seem to be of particular interest to entrepreneurs. Here are two more upcoming events around Charlotte that could be useful to the up and coming business or entrepreneur.
Business Plan Basics (4/30)
Next Wednesday April 30 from 5:30pm until 7:30pm at the Levine Campus there will be a seminar to help you turn your business idea into a solid plan. Learn how to plan for financing and other aspects that contribute to long term success. You’ll learn the basic model and get an overview of how to make a successful business plan that includes marketing, finance and operation. You’ll learn how all of these go together to make an efficient business plan that will take your business ideas from conception to success. For more information call 704-330-4223.
Funding Your Business (5/1)
On Thursday May 1 at the Central Campus there will be another great seminar that will go into more detail on the financial aspect of business planning. It will include the different type of debt financing and equity and will include many different types of loans such as SBA guaranteed, bank loans, private loans, venture capital, credit card, factored receivables, as well as supplier trade credit.

If you want to be sure that your next business idea or venture will be a success it’s a smart idea to learn as much as you can about the technical aspects of running a business. The more you learn the more likely it’ll be that your business will be successful right from the start instead of running into unnecessary difficulties.
