About These Courses
Starting a Business

Starting a business is one of the most exciting journeys an individual can take. Over ten million people each year consider starting a business. As a result, more than three million new small businesses are started annually.

Several free online courses are offered by the SBA to help prospective entrepreneurs better understand the basics about starting a small business.  These self-paced courses are easy to use and understand.  They will take about 30 minutes to complete.  You, however, can exit a course at any time.  Because most of the courses offer audio explanations, it is recommended that your computer speakers be turned on.

Before entering a course, you will be prompted to complete an online registration form.  The registration process is simple, asks only a couple of questions and will take less than a minute to complete.
