Register for a Toolbox Workshop

StartUp Toolbox is our program for folks who are just starting out or who are working on a business idea. It’s a toolkit for you to do things right the first time! Register for one of the free workshops.

Do you want to open your own business? Do you have an idea for a product or service and you want to bring to market? Maybe you have people ready to buy your products, or customers ready to sign up for your services, but you’re not sure how to start getting paid. You may have an idea what your concept is but you’re not sure if it will make a profitable company. We’ll cover the importance of creating a business plan, figuring out how to determine which licenses and permits you really need, and what other resources are available to launch your new venture. 

StartUp Toolbox counts toward the Start Small Campbell Grant requirements!


Or join our One Page Business Plan Toolbox meetup!

We regularly host small group sessions working through the One Page Business Plan, based on the business model canvas. This tool helps jump start writing your plan or helps you work through a new product or service idea. Want to attend? Sign up! New dates coming soon! 

If the dates for Start Up Toolbox don’t work for you – please check out some of the great resources and training across Virginia through the SBDC. Or, register for the Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative via the Library of Virginia! Be sure to register for counseling (click Request Meeting above) for coaching as you work through the ELI program.
