Flagler offers business plan help from SCORE

Flagler College invites Historic City News readers to participate in a four-part planning workshop for small businesses in cooperation with the St Johns Chamber of Commerce and the small business counselors from SCORE.

All sessions will be held at Flagler College on Wednesday evenings on March 9, March 23, April 6, and April 20 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Room 300 of Kenan Hall at Flagler College.

The workshop is designed both for those with an existing business who wish to increase their business as well as those considering starting a new business. The SCORE counselors will address preparations for a professional business plan and how to obtain the necessary financing.

The workshop will be in four parts: business concepts and data collection, marketing strategies, financial forecasting and completing the business plan. It is designed to help clients make a “go” or “no-go” decision for their business idea. Both homework and counseling are a part of the workshop process.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economic community, and our goal is to both help new entrepreneurs get started as well as to help existing businesses grow,” said Marty Cohen, a SCORE counselor.

The cost to participate in all four sessions is $99 if registration is received prior to Feb. 28 or $110 after Feb. 28. Attendance at individual sessions is possible for $30 per session.
