FAQ 1: Can I be a Successful Entrepreneur? Will My Business Idea Be Successful?
Often successful businesses begin with only “a seed of an idea” in the mind of an individual. To develop the idea it is often beneficial to “fertilize and water” it by gathering additional information and talking to knowledgeable people.
Sometimes an individual with a very good business idea wonders whether they have all of the necessary skills, knowledge & experience to turn their idea into a profitable business – would I make a successful entrepreneur?
A good place to start is to speak in confidence with our SCOR Business Development Officer who can help you to explore your idea, develop it further and introduce you to other people and services that can assist you. Just contact us at: SCOR Economic Development Office.
