CO.STARTERS CORE, La Grande, 4th Session

CO.STARTERS CORE, facilitated by Lisa Dawson

Launch your small business idea or refine your current business model through this no-cost 10-week program.

CO.STARTERS CORE walks entrepreneurs through 10 foundational topics in a cohort with other “starters” – entrepreneurs, business owners or potential business owners – who are learning together and helping each other make improvements to their business model.

Each week we’ll focus on a different topic:

Pinpoint what your customer wants and how to adapt to their needs.

Business solutions & starting small

Test your solution by starting small and making adjustments as needed.

Getting, keeping, & growing customers

Build customer relationships through your messaging & marketing.

Revenue, pricing, & distribution

Figure out your logistics and how you’ll make money.

Legal & accounting

Understand the systems and structures you’ll need to support your business.

Financial modeling

Determine your costs and whether your business model is financially viable.

Funding & Raising Capital

Know your options for finding the funds you need to grow sustainably.

Growth plans & goal setting
