Free start-up and scale-up business workshops are typically offered at least monthly and are led by staff from the SBA (Small Business Administration), or other highly knowledgeable presenters. These workshops cover topics such as business start-up 101, available funding types for small businesses, financial management, how to find a mentor, business trends, steps to government contracting, and more!

While these workshops are free and open to the public, we do ask that each participant registers online or by calling 317-737-2155 to ensure enough seats and materials are available.
