On April 23rd Bull City Forward will be hosting a free, half-day training and information event “Transform Your Life Through Entrepreneurship: Business Building Basics”. This is our second event of the year, following up on our successful event held back in February.
This event is for unconventional entrepreneurs, many living on modest means, who lack access to support needed to develop a thriving business. This includes high level users of social services in our region who are struggling to break free of poverty. The event will include a talk with a headline speaker, as well as two breakout sessions. The first breakout session is designed to inform and connect individuals to the resources they need to take the next step in developing a business. The second is for those a little further along in the business development. This session is meant to help entrepreneurs build a basic business plan.

Additionally, we’ll be linking entrepreneurs to potential mentors, so this will be a great opportunity for mentors to find out what sort of help people are needing, and to connect with those they can help the most.

You can register for the event at TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE EVENT. We would also love it if you could forward this to anyone that you think could benefit from this event, or to someone who works with groups of these individuals.

You can reach me by email at geraudstaton@bullcityforward.org, or by phone at (919) 423-7841. On behalf of myself and the BCF Board of Directors, thank you in advance for your support.
