SCORE offering workshops for military personnel

The Colorado Springs SCORE chapter is offering “Starting a Small Business” workshops for members of the military.

The four-hour course is designed to answer the basic questions for people leaving the service and starting a small business.

The presentation includes discussions about the advantages and disadvantages of starting from scratch, purchasing a franchise or buying an existing business. While the information is an important first step, it does not replace the need to seek legal and accounting advice for concerns unique to an individual business.

Registration is done through the Family Support Center at each base or post. The cost is $15 per participant. Additional information is available by calling the SCORE office at 636-3074.

Programs are scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon at the following locations:

Fort Carson – Aug. 8 and Nov. 14

Peterson AFB – Nov. 1

Schriever AFB – Aug. 29 and Nov. 7
