An Exploratory Session for Entrepreneurs

Upon identifying our passions and perfecting our craft, we are often faced with the question, “Can I actually turn this hobby I love into a profitable business?”
On Thursday, March 7th, join the Connecticut Small Business Development Center (CTSBDC) and Upward for an interactive discussion on how a creative passion can grow from a hobby to a small business – & beyond!

Facilitated by CTSBDC Business Advisor Denise Whitford, this workshop is designed for early-stage entrepreneurs who are curious about making the leap from a part-time hobby to a full-time venture. In this two-part series, the first workshop will focus on what it means to be in business for yourself, and how you self-assess if becoming a business owner full time is right for you. The second workshop will cover startup basics, how to find the right mentor, and where to find the resources and tools needed to grow your business from a passion project to a lucrative venture.

Attendees should bring a laptop, tablet, and/or other writing materials.

In addition to light refreshments and networking, attendees are eligible for a specialized membership offer from host Upward Hartford!
