May 17 workshop will focus on home-based businesses
On May 17 home-based business owners will have the opportunity to learn strategies and techniques on how to move into an office or storefront. FutureHeights is sponsoring the free workshop “From Home-Based to Storefront,” which aims to teach business owners about the resources available to them in the community, what to consider when determining whether to move into a storefront or rented office space, and strategies for growth.
The workshop will host two speakers, Jennifer Corso and Marc Rossen of Petronzio Schneier Co., LPA, who have both focused much of their careers on small business development. Corso practices in the area of employment law, and advises small businesses on hiring, firing, discipline and safety issues. Rossen focuses on startup law, helping entrepreneurs and small businesses with such issues as setting up a business entity, protecting business ideas and intellectual property, funding a growing business, acquiring new businesses and more.
“From Home-Based to Storefront” will take place at Ensemble Theatre at the Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Campus, 2843 Washington Boulevard, on Friday, May 17 at 8 a.m. RSVP at www.homebasedtostorefront.eventbrite.com or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
