About the BEA
Launching or growing a business can be complicated and overwhelming.The many factors involved - money, team, technology, marketing, legal, accounting - cause many people who want to be entrepreneurs and business owners to forego the opportunity to invest in their own talents, skills, and ideas.Even worse, some people count themselves out before fully exploring or understanding their options.
Black Connect’s Business & Entrepreneur Assessment (BEA) Program helps individuals who aspire to launch or grow a business venture, but need a roadmap to achieving their goals.This assessment program can help members to not only understand their strengths and capabilities, but can also provide useful guidance for creating a business plan and finding additional resources.The BEA program is the first component of Black Connect’s developing business incubator.
The BEA helps participants answer fundamental questions such as:
1. Is entrepreneurship and business ownership right for me?
2. What type of business is best suited for me?
3. What roles do I need to fill for my business idea to succeed?
4. Should I form a corporation, LLC, or sole proprietorship?
5. How should I market my business?
6. What expenses should I expect in launching my business?
7. How do I develop a prototype?
