Northeast Ohio entrepreneurs are invited to join Hiram College’s Center for Integrated Entrepreneurship for several entrepreneurship workshops this semester. The workshops are designed to encourage members of Hiram College and the community to explore and develop their original ideas.

The second of these workshops, “So You Have an Idea; Now What?” will take place from 3-5 p.m. on Oct. 17, 2014, at East Hall Forum. Workshops are free for Hiram students, $10 for Hiram alumni and $20 for all others. Sign up now.

There’s no magic answer to the question, “Is your idea a good one?” Experience has shown that some of the most bizarre ideas – such as the concept of a personal computer – have turned into successful businesses, while some have not. It’s important to look critically and impartially at your business idea when determining whether or not it’s worth investing your time and money. It can be difficult to remain impartial about an idea you’re passionate about, so talk to a business adviser to get a qualified and objective perspective. Topics will include:

  • Feasibility studies and how to go about making one
  • How to find a qualified and objective business adviser

The next entrepreneurship workshop, “Franchising,” will take place on Nov. 7, 2014.
