About the course

While starting a business is easier than ever in many ways, the foundation of any profitable business remains what it’s always been: determination, drive and hard work. As you begin your entrepreneurial journey, use this chapter to lay the groundwork for success

In this module of the Startup Roadmap, you’ll conduct a thorough self-assessment to confirm that you have what it takes to start a business.

You’ll assess your readiness to start a business, including your motivation, your skills and experience, your financial resources, your goals, and your support system. You’ll identify the tools at your disposal to help you succeed, and the tools you still need to acquire before proceeding. If you get stuck at any point, your SCORE mentor is there to help you.
