Tips from the Pros on How to Start Your Own Business, August 30th
Challenging economic times do not have to block a dream of starting a successful business, says Paul Bozzo, who is featured as the keynote speaker at a special Sonoma State University Alumni Association networking event on Tuesday, August 30, from 7:30am - 10:00 a.m. at the Sonoma Mountain Business Cluster Event Center in Rohnert Park.
Admission is $5 general public and free to Alumni Association members.
"A sound business idea, the right knowledge, access to community resources and strong determination can lead to a successful start-up," says Bozzo, who will present tips from his "Insider's Guide to Starting and Growing a Successful Small Business." The guide is a review of the most common mistakes entrepreneurs make and how to avoid them as well as the five most important keys for a successful start-up venture.
Bozzo, an expert in business start-up strategies, has more than 20 years of experience in working with entrepreneurial ventures and specializes in strategic business planning and Venture Capital/Angel/Small Business Association funding.
Hard to find resources in Marin and Sonoma County about how to start a business - or grow an existing one - will also be available.
Representatives from a wide range of business and financial concerns will be on hand to address questions in a face-to-face setting so attendees can come away from the event with a clearer sense of how to start their own business or create their own jobs.
Organizations involved include:
- SBDC Santa Rosa JC, NextStep
- North Coast SCORE - Chapter 450
- College of Marin
- Santa Rosa Young Professionals Network
- Sonoma County Economic Development Board
- Exchange Bank SBA Loans
- City of Santa Rosa Economic Development
