Doors open at 11:30am for a brief networking window. The program begins promptly at 12pm and ends at 1pm.
Recognizing a good opportunity & starting a business.
Why do some small businesses succeed and others fail? What role does the initial idea play in its success?
Dave Lupyan, a SCORE volunteer, and a product commercialization consultant in NE Ohio, will discuss these topics. He will introduce never-fail product concepts and show you the 6 rules of successful product commercialization, regardless if you have a physical product, a new service, or even a retail store. These concepts are universally recognized and practiced by all successful businesses.
