Panel with 
Ebony Thomas & Dr. Laureen Wishom
Mistress of Ceremony: Regina Baker

Starting, developing or expanding a business is never easy. But don't worry, you needn't do it alone. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses; this is a chance to weigh up yours, identify what you're doing right and the areas of business that need improvement. Because startup business usually involves your personal finances, we will discuss the importance of a personal financial checkup and the startup cost necessary to avoid pitfalls.

Whether you are currently employed, looking to start your own business, or looking to grow your business, this workshop is for YOU:

  • Currently employed - who are looking to start a side business or have a Plan B in place in case they need to make it their Plan A.
  • Individuals - who are looking to supplement their current income by turning their talent, ideas and passion into a business quickly.
  • New Entrepreneurs - who want to understand the steps that must be made to survive in business and maintain their profitability.
  • Existing Entrepreneurs – who have been in business and want to grow their business.
Whether you’re on the side lines of entrepreneurship with a desire to start your own business, if you’re recently launched your business, or even if you have been in business for a while, this workshop will provide an understanding of the fundamentals of startup finance, how to transition to a long standing business and gain insight about the capital, resources and strategic alliances necessary to achieve your goals.
