Self Employment Circle

For people who want to start their own business.

In 2021 seven dates will be offered with different topics. 6 group sessions and 1 single session.

Next workshop: Thursday, November 4th, 2021, from 9:00 - 12:00 h, CIC office, Villach.
Topic: Customer analysis and acquisition.

All about talents, skills and character traits. How do I deal with challenges? What patterns and leitmotifs do I have? Which environment is beneficial for me, what inhibits me? The participants describe their personal strengths and clarify which factors are of decisive importance for the success of their company.

All dates:
21st January 
4th March
15th April
6th May 
8th July 
16th September
4th November

The participants of the circle have a common goal: the path to self-employment or the successful founding of a company. The course is in English.

Small group sizes enable an exchange among like-minded people. In this protected environment, personal questions and concerns are as important as positive feedback or constructive criticism. This can create new contacts and/or entire networks.

Together we work intensively on our own business ideas. Who are my target groups? What is my USP? How do I finance the start-up phase? Do I need partners? How do I write a business plan?

The circle is supplemented with relevant information from experts who are invited to the respective topics (e.g. insurance, marketing, ...).
