Ready? Set. Go!  is a 90-minute free workshop that takes you all the things you need to think about when going into business.  It provides a general overview of what it takes to start a business; legal considerations and what it takes to fund a new venture.  The workshop is taught by a small business expert, a lawyer, and a financier.
