Business Plan Workshop Set for Entrepreneurs

JAN. 20, 2006--The Small Business Development Center at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls helps would-be business owners prepare business plans through its entrepreneurial training program.

Entrepreneurs can learn how to write a business plan by attending NxLeveL(TM) Entrepreneurs, a 12-session intensive training program from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursdays, Feb. 9 through May 4 in room 318, South Hall. The $250 course fee includes tuition, a comprehensive reference book and all class handouts. The class size is limited to 40.

"A well-thought out business plan is one of the most critical aspects of going into business," says Steve DeWald, director of the University's SBDC. "It is a key requirement in securing a business loan. In addition, it serves as an important road map for your business."

At the end of the 12-week session, students will have produced a comprehensive business plan. The course covers all aspects of creating a business plan from the mission statement and objectives to marketing, financials, legal structures and future growth.  

In addition to training sessions, the SBDC offers one-on-one confidential business counseling to persons who would like to start a business, have recently started a business or are thinking of growing their business. The SBDC also counsels small business owners seeking help in resolving a business issue. There is no charge for the one-on-one counseling sessions at the center.

For more information on the upcoming program or other services, contact DeWald at 715-425-3335 or by e-mail at
