Although the tumultuous economy has caused some to cling to their full-time jobs, now is the best time to live your dreams and to begin your own business. Roughly half of today’s Fortune 500 companies were founded in recessions or bear markets, ultimately helping our economy to withstand adversity. You are invited to live your dreams and to ultimately join the ranks of these companies.

If you are interested in entrepreneurship, SC State University’s Small Business Development Center will sponsor an education and training seminar on Tuesday, July 13, 2010 from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. The workshop will be held in the third floor development room of Belcher Hall, located on the campus of SC State University. Presenters include Sylvia Dunning and Pamela Free, economic development consultants from the SBDC.

Upon completion of the seminar, you should be able to understand the dynamics for starting a business, to include: determining if entrepreneurship is for you, understanding your business structure, researching your start-up costs, and understanding your credit history.

To register for the seminar, please complete registration form and forward it to Pamela Free, South Carolina State University, Small Business Development Center, 300 College Street, NE, Campus P.O. Box 7176, Orangeburg, S.C. 29117. You may also fax your form to (803) 536-8066. For additional information, call the SBDC at (803) 536-8445.
