Veteran Entrepreneur's Introduction to Business

April 20, 2023 at 5:30pm – 6:30pm

Hosted by Beachworx

Brent Peacock, Veterans Business Outreach Center Director, presents an introduction to business - good information for ALL entrepreneurs!

In uncertain economic times, people often seek to take control of their work and financial stability by starting their own business. Entrepreneurship is also very attractive to military service members and their families as their military careers come to a close.

It is possible to achieve financial independence by owning your own business, if you do the foundational work to set up your business for success.

In conjunction with Veterans Florida, our workshop is presented by Brent Peacock, the Director of the Veterans Business Outreach Center, also known as VBOC.

VBOC is a division of the US Small Business Administration, an organization dedicated to helping all entrepreneurs launch or grow their business. Although the VBOC's primary community of outreach is military veterans and their families, the information in their workshops is helpful to all new entrepreneurs.

This workshop will discuss what is involved in owning your own business, specifically:

Determining your business idea's marketability

Structuring your business - capital investments and legal formation requirements, etc.

Marketing vs Advertising - what's the difference and what's the most cost effective?

If you're considering launching your own business, this is a workshop you won't want to miss!

Register today and receive a complimentary ticket to a networking happy hour before the workshop (4:30). Pizza and alternative beverages will be served during the workshop.
