Spring offers workshop series – podcast added

The Spring, a Studer Community Institute initiative, has launched a workshop series to cover the key topics entrepreneurs face as they start and grow their own business.

Attendees of the “How To” Workshop Series will hear from local experts on topics like creating a business plan, protecting your business, the key to getting funded, managing finances, marketing your business, and optimizing social media.

“One of the most difficult things about opening a small business is making sure you have a working understanding of topics that will affect your success day to day,” said SCI Chief Entrepreneur Officer D.C. Reeves, who opened Perfect Plain Brewing Company in Pensacola in 2017. “This series is filled with people who were impactful on many journeys in entrepreneurship – mine included – and will do the same for anyone thinking about opening their own business.”

Throughout the series, skilled speakers will provide tips, insight and resources entrepreneurs need to set their business up for success.

Each workshop, taking place in the SCI Building at 220 W Garden St., will include time for networking, presentation, and time for questions and answers. Attendees will also receive a free one-day pass to The Spring Co-Working Space and two hours of conference room access.

Purchase a ticket to one workshop for $20 or purchase a bundle and attend all 6 for only $100.
