System at Sugar Land (UHSSL), aspiring small-business owners soon
will be able to get expert advice on the nuts and bolts of starting
and funding a new business.

will include Personal Factors & Management; Business Opportunities;
Marketing; Organizations, Regulations & Insurance; Requirements
& Sources of Funds; Business Records; and Business Plans.
The seminar will be presented by members of the Service Corps of
Retired Executives (SCORE), a resource partner to the U.S. Small
Business Administration. SCORE advises new and current small-business
