KINGMAN - The Small Business Development Center at Mohave Community College has teamed with the U.S. Small Business Administration to host a seminar for veterans and other Mohave County residents interested in starting a business.

In conjunction with the SBA’s Veterans Business Outreach Centers, the college’s SBDC will host a free, two-hour seminar 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday at the MCC Kingman campus in building 2000 on the northwest side of the school.

The sessions will be led by Ed Molina, director of the Arizona Veterans Business Outreach Centers, along with business analyst and Air Force veteran Ken Anderson, will cover a variety of topics such as the business ownership process, basics of recognizing marketplace opportunities and the competitive space, small business economics, legal and financial basics, and an introduction to business planning.

Molina, a retired Army chief warrant officer, has more than 23 years of business experience. He is a founding partner of the veteran owned Intelligence, Communication, and Engineering, Inc. The company has 230 employees in 22 states and two foreign countries.

This seminar is designed to provide general information to veteran entrepreneurs, and they will learn more about upcoming ReBoot seminars that will be scheduled at a later date. The ReBoot seminars are provided under the umbrella of the U.S. Small Business Administration in an effort to stimulate more small business start-ups by sharing with potential business owners the knowledge of the resources available.
