Business Basics - A Road Map, InnoGrove Coworking, Wednesday, 11. December 2019

You see people having problems. You see a better way. And you know how to fix it.
But that’s not what makes you a hero. You want to start a business because you’re not satisfied with the way things are. You are taking a risk to make a difference. And that’s what makes you a hero!
Heroes are allowed to be uncertain - in fact, it’s their perseverance through fear and uncertainty that makes them brave. Heroes know they can ask for help and work with a team. And that’s what we’d like to offer you in this new free class: Business Basics.
In this class, we’ll cover what an Entrepreneur’s Journey looks like. We’ll show you what’s in store and how to avoid common pitfalls. We’ll talk about things like business entities, intellectual property, and how to get started with your plan. At the end of this class, you’ll know what starting a business looks like.
So come be a hero.  Register for this class today!
This workshop is held in partnership with the Capital Region SBDC.
Instructor:


Dan Casas-Murray
After 11 years of a steady paycheck, good status at his job, yearly pay raises and nice benefits, Dan left the US Army to become cashless, jobless, and just another civilian in Baghdad, Iraq. Within a year there, Dan co-founded a wireless Internet Service Provider, providing internet connections to around 400 people on a military base.
Two years later, the company was providing communication services to multiple Department of Defense contractors and international security firms in the area. At the end of 2014, the company had grossed a little over $3 million in revenues.
In 2012, Dan returned back to the Sacramento area with his wife, Maria after 5 years abroad. They purchased a small frozen yogurt and cupcake shop in Roseville, and worked to establish a customer base there. By the end of 2015, they had grown the business to a total of two brick and mortar locations in the Roseville area.
Dan is the founder at The Lean Innovator, an organization that helps entrepreneurs locate and engage with their target markets, enabling them to build a customer base before launching a startup. He is also an advisor for the Capital Region Small Business Development Center, and helps clients to employ lean innovation methodologies while getting their businesses started.
