Are you thinking of starting a small business but do not know where to start? Do you have an idea, but need a few pointers on where the best resources are? If you answered yes to these questions or just want to learn more about getting a business off the ground in Minnesota, then this is the class for you.

In this short and free introductory class, we will go over the basics of starting a business in Minnesota:

  • Different corporate structures
  • Writing a business plan
  • Information on free counseling from SBA partners and other free community resources
  • The five C’s of Credit
  • Financing options that are available
  • Exporting
  • Selling to the Government

Join us for this small group session and let us help accelerate your small business dreams today! Sign up early as space is limited to allow everyone a chance to interact with us and ask the questions they need answered.

We are in the process of renovating the James J. Hill Center to make the space more accessible to individuals with wheelchairs or limited mobility. This construction includes major renovation of our interior elevator. Due to this renovation, elevator access to the building and second floor for persons with accessibility constraints will be limited. A manual mobility Liftkar operated by a trained JJ Hill staff person will be available so that individuals in wheelchairs have access to our space. To schedule assistance before your visit, or if you have questions, please contact 651.265.5500. Unfortunately we are unable to transport electric scooters. Elevator construction will begin October 31, 2016 until completion in April, 2017. We apologize for any inconvenience during this construction. Thank you for your understanding.

This project has been financed in part with funds provided by the State of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society and the F. R. Bigelow Foundation.
