The SCORE Boston Business Startup Bootcamp provides an overview of what you need to consider when you are planning to start a new business. It is designed to help you go from business concept to "opening the doors".

The day consists of two sessions: 

The Morning Session is a 3 hour interactive presentation, given by experienced SCORE counselors in each of the areas discussed. This session will give you a clear understanding of what is necessary to start and run a business.

Key Topics include:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Funding and loans
  • Accounting and bookkeeping
  • Marketing, sales, and the elevator pitch
  • Legal issues

The Afternoon Session consists of small roundtable discussions with other entrepreneurs, led by SCORE counselors. In these discussions, you can get feedback on your "elevator pitch", talk about the issues you are facing in starting your business, and get ideas for how to solve them.
