Conversation + Questions

Conversations and Questions can be used by anyone in the community. Questions, responses to articles and answers to questions will be posted for comment. The purpose is to receive real-time feedback on problems, vet ideas, get answers, generate discussion and respond to current issues. Also, this section will be used to request assistance or get a reference for a support resource. This feature will change over time into a service section designed to connect entrepreneurs with successful, personalized actions plans, digital tools and expert advice designed to support your unique business needs for a discounted entrepreneur fee.

If the conversation or discussion requires a variety of experts to response, attachments or additional detail information, use the MyStartUpSuncoast Facebook page as more people can join the conversation and additional details or information can be added or attached in the Facebook entries.
