Start your business off right with Start Smart

Start Smart

What is Start Smart?

At Start Smart, participants learn how to create a business plan, conduct market research, discuss different types of business ownership, and learn how to register a business. The Start Smart videos are designed to give basic preparation before visiting with a business counselor. Now, North Iowa entrepreneurs can participate in Start Smart on their own schedule.

Presented by America's SBDC Iowa:

The Start Smart sessions have been recorded and divided into 6 parts, so you can watch them when it is convenient for you.  There will be short tests at the end of each session to ensure you understand the basic concept.  After viewing the Start Smart trainings, you can make an appointment to meet over the phone or individually with the Small Business Development Center Counselors to help review your business plan or provide guidance with other issues.  Access Start Smart on-demand at America's SBDC Iowa:
