The University of Scranton Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will hold the training seminar “The First Step: Starting Your Business” on Wednesday, June 5 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Pike County Chamber of Commerce, 209 East Harford Street, Milford.

During the session, Donna Simpson, SBDC business consultant, will guide attendees through the basics of starting a business in Pennsylvania. Registrations, licenses, business structures, and business plan development will be covered, as well as what to expect in financing and expense and sales estimation. Once an individual has attended this session, they may sign up for free and confidential individual consulting by Ms. Simpson to guide them through the start-up process.

“When people begin to research starting a business, they find an overwhelming amount of information that is difficult to make sense of,” said Lisa Hall, director of the Scranton SBDC. “Our First Step training class provides straightforward start-up information, including the scams to watch out for.”

Cost is $20 per person. Space is limited, pre-registration and pre-payment are required. Visit or call Donna at 570-941-4176 to register.
