Would-be entrepreneurs can register today for the Delaware Small Business Development Center’s (SBDC’s) free “How to Start a Business” webinar. Following the webinar, participants may then register for free one-on-one business advising.

David Root, center director for the SBDC in Georgetown, said, “We are now advising clients with a variety of business ideas, such as manufacturing, daycare centers, marketing and social media consulting, service businesses, food trucks and retail shops.”
