Wednesday, June 10, 6:00-8:30pm @ Sarkozy Bakery
You own your own business. You work all day, everyday. You carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. You think you need to have all the answers. What if we told you that you're not alone? That you shouldn't try to do it all by yourself? Building your support network is where it's at. Startup Sampler will introduce you to, or remind you of, the important services that create your support network. Your support circle. People to lean on and get advice from. Accountant, graphic designer, loan officer, insurance agent, customer relations consultant. Yes! They will all be at the workshop and you'll have a chance to talk with them all in small groups. Plus you'll be surrounded by your fellow entrepreneurs. There will be an opportunity to purchase food and drinks to enjoy while you're learning and networking. Please register and pay here:
The workshop is generously supported by three "Perfect Paw Paw" sponsors: Cherry Capital Foods, Kalamazoo Valley Community College, and Angela Shannon Insurance Agency. Many thannks!
