  • These workshops cover the basic information needed to start a business such as business and marketing plans, financing, types of organizations, and rules and regulations.

    Offered at various locations throughout the Southern Alleghenies region, the workshop lasts approximately 3 hours.  Pre-registration is required at least two business days in advance.

    Workshops are subject to rescheduling due to enrollment; in this event, every effort will be made to contact you in advance.
