Start Your Own Business Workshop, August 29 - December 5

Our Start Your Own Business workshop provides the confidence that comes from thinking through all key factors necessary to ensure business growth and long-term success. We also connect you to a network of entrepreneurs, business leaders, and experts motivated to help you succeed.

This workshop is customized to empower people who want to launch a new business or who are already operating one in Lebanon. Successful business ownership needs more than a great idea, product or service. Business success also needs an entrepreneurial mindset, understanding strategic and business planning, finance and accounting, legal requirements, management, sales and marketing, as well as key success factors and avoidable mistakes.

Delivered by successful local entrepreneurs, this practical workshop will help you understand the entrepreneurship process and guide you as you develop your business concept and business plan.
