JONESBORO — Arkansas State University’s Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC) has established a one-day boot camp-style seminar called “Start-Up In A Day” to assist entrepreneurs in planning and operating a business.

To register by phone, call (870) 972-3517 or visit asbtdc.org/training/jonesboro-events to register online.

Starting a business requires planning and commitment. Small business entrepreneurs need to know the laws, requirements, best practices and available resources for operating a business.

This camp will assist navigation through the start-up steps, legal structures, licensing requirements and insurance options needed to launch a business. The seminar will begin with experts walking participants through the foundations of a business, including the business plan, market research and financing options.

Field professionals will cover licensing, legal business structures and small business insurance. First-time small business owners can take advantage of the opportunity to seek advice and ask questions of local experts.

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities and individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP) will be made available upon request. Contact Kelli Listenbee at klee@AState.edu.
