Description

After MadeBySFU: From Incorporation to Distribution


You won #MadeBySFU, now what? It’s time to make a plan on how you can grow your business and fulfill your purchase orders for the SFU Spirit Shop.

In this workshop, we will show you how you can protect yourself and your product, from incorporation to trademark and copyright. We will discuss distribution details that are commonly overlooked and easily swallow up a small product-based business, like packaging, labels, shipping, and handling returns. As well, we will show you how to aim for zero-returns and zero-unhappy customers.

Using a fictional company, Peter Payne will walk you through a checklist of questions to help you better understand your business and set you up for success.


Monday, October 28, 2019
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

WMC 2210 SFU Burnaby Campus

Please bring paper, a notebook or laptop for notes!
