NIACC offering help to entrepreneurs

  • 0

The NIACC Pappajohn Center and the Small Business Development Center are offering a free two-hour workshop designed for anyone who is considering starting a business. At Start Smart, participants will learn how to create a business plan, conduct market research, discuss different types of business ownership, and learn how to register a business.


Start Smart will be offered online via Zoom from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 1.

According to the press release, the activities involved in starting a business fall under two broad categories – feasibility (the business plan) and administrative tasks. While we like to focus on the feasibility issue, Start Smart provides information and the chance to ask questions on numerous other topics, including:

Business registration, doing customer research, how bankers evaluate business concepts and loans, start-up costs, business plan tips and more.

After attending Start Smart, participants can make an appointment to meet over the phone individually with the Small Business Development Center Counselors to help review a business plan or provide guidance with other issues.

Registration is required. Go to our website and click on the Program and Events tab to register.

For questions, contact Mary Spitz-SBDC office at NIACC: 641-422-4342 or at
