— from Victoria Compton —

All entrepreneurs wonder if there is a market for their business ideas, or if they will make money from them. Join the San Juan County Economic Development Council (EDC) for a free workshop to learn more about Business Feasibility, on February 28 from 10-11:30 a.m. on Orcas Island, sponsored by Island Market and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Advance registration is required.

One of the most important steps for entrepreneurs in starting their new businesses is to assess their ideas’ feasibility, to minimize risks and to increase their businesses’ potential for success. This workshop will be led by Tony Salas of the SBDC, and a management consultant for over a decade. The course will cover the steps necessary to assess the market, manage risk, determine economic and technological feasibility, and to ensure greater success for a startup or business expansion.
