Derry Public Library will be the location for an exciting informational opportunity for anybody who has considered the idea of opening a new business in Derry, New Hampshire.
On Saturday, January 28, 2017 three agencies will team up to offer advice and guidance to potential entrepreneurs. Merrimack Valley SCORE, Derry Public Library, and the Town of Derry Planning Department will jointly sponsor “Derry is Open for Business 2017”. This all day workshop will feature two presentations by SCORE that will cover the basics all new business owners should know as well as how to write a business plan, plus information from the Planning Department about such important local aspects of starting a business such as permits, approvals, and zoning issues. Local business owners and representatives from the Derry Chamber of Commerce will also be on hand to discuss what it’s like to own a business in Derry. Additionally, the Library will give a short session about the resources, tools, and services offered that might be of use in researching the market, writing a business plan, and opening your business.
According to Robbie Grady, SCORE Mentor, “This is a great chance to get all the information you need to be successful at opening a business in Derry. This community has a lively, growing economy, and potential owners can get a good head start on the process by attending this event. SCORE’s mission is to foster vibrant small business communities through mentoring and education, and we look at this new approach of partnering with one municipality as a perfect chance to fulfill that mission. We always encourage our clients to work with municipal offices and public libraries for the wealth of information and support they can provide, so it was a natural fit for us to partner with them here in Derry.”
The event runs from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. with breakfast refreshments and lunch provided.
