Turning Business Ideas into Game Changing Concepts

Posted:
Have you ever thought of starting your own business?

Monday night, Binghamton University hosted a workshop for those interested in coming up with a business idea. Speakers who specialize in entrepreneurship provided insight on what makes for a great startup idea and the steps to turn that idea into a reality.

One presenter hoped after Monday night's workshop participants will view the world from a different perspective.

Brad Treat of Southern Tier Startup Alliance said "Looking around their community and their world with an entrepreneurial mind-set when we talk about a great idea for an entrepreneurial business it's one that solves a problem, ideally a problem someone will pay you for. So what entrepreneurs do is look around and say ok what are these problems and will somebody pay me to solve that problem. One of our main goals is to create community so it will allow one another . If we can connect them to other entrepreneurs then you create this movement of entrepreneurial growth. The ultimate goal for this workshop is that's how the new jobs get created because the new companies are the ones that make them."

BU will be hosting another workshop next Monday on how to win a business plan competition.
