Self-employment Circle

For people who want to start their own business.

Location: CIC office, Villach

Thursdays from 9:00 – 12:00

Series start: 23rd January 2020
In 2020 seven dates will be offered with different topics.
23rd January

5th March 
28th May 
9th July 
28th September (Monday) - please note change of date
14th December (Monday) - please note change of date.

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, ...).
