Start-Up/Aspiring Entrepreneurs

If you're starting a new business, KSBDC can help.

To begin, consider taking a workshop on starting a business.  The KSBDC start-up workshops include:

  • Starting a Business:  Success Right from the Workshop (6-9:30 p.m.)
  • Starting a Business: Small Business Basics in a Day (8 a.m.-4 p.m.)

There are also eight- and 16- week business planning courses available during the fall and spring semesters at JCCC.

After you have completed a start-up workshop or have the beginnings of a business plan, you may set an appointment with one of the KSBDC's experienced small business consultants. There is no charge for this service.

For more information or to set an appointment, email the KSBDC or call 913-469-3878.

Please check out the Resources and Forms section for additional information that may be helpful to you.
