Starting Your Business
Starting a small business requires more than just a good idea. At the North Country SBDC, we can help you bring your idea from concept to reality by counseling you through the business planning process.
Using the “Four Cornerstones of Success," we will help you measure the feasibility of your venture by helping you assess:
· Leadership – your ability to bring your vision into focus and recognize your strengths and weaknesses, both in your business model and in the marketplace
· Operations – your understanding of the “customer cycle,” or the flow of your products or services to your customers, from concept/production to delivery
· Marketing – your ability to communicate the benefits of your products to your customers and develop your strategy to continually grow the sales of your business
· Financial – the capital required to start your business, your budget, forecasts and key performance indicators that will determine overall success
