More people are exploring life as an entrepreneur and small businesses are sprouting up around Newport News. To help people who are interested in owning a business but aren’t sure where to start, the Newport News Department of Development is sponsoring a FREE “Owning Your Own Business” workshop. The seminar will be held Tuesday, April 5th from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 700 Town Center Drive, in the James Room on the first floor of the Fountain Plaza II building located in City Center at Oyster Point.
The Department of Development will cover components that help lead to a successful business start-up, business plans, financing, marketing, legal structures, and information on various business assistance programs. Participants will also hear from representatives from the Hampton Roads Small Business Development Center, Fulton Bank, and the city’s Purchasing Office who will provide insight on how to do business with the city.
