Are you thinking about starting a small business? Does the thought of independence motivate you, or the passion for creativity excite you? Are you ready?

Before you dive in too deep, we invite you to join us as we discuss the self-assessment process to find out if entrepreneurship is right for you. We’ll walk you through the major considerations you’ll need to address in order to be successful. This includes personal evaluation, and market research.

Being honest with yourself is a key component to a solid start, and Excellence in Entrepreneurship. Are you independent, confident, creative, and persuasive? Are you organized, a quick decision maker, and a good negotiator? You may have a desire to start a business, but do you have a minimum viable product (MVP)? Is your product a new invention, an upgrade to an existing one, and who is your competition?

No one is completely ready when starting a business, but that’s where OBE comes in. We’ll help you conduct a self-appraisal, and focus on the core value of your product or service and the features that your target consumer really needs.

Cost: OBE Members $10, Non-Members $20. Tickets will not be sold at the door.

Parking: Free street parking.

What to bring: This is a networking opportunity for collaboration and business growth. Let’s make the most of it! Bring your business cards, flyers, and other business/organizational information to share with others. Don’t forget to bring a friend to share the experience.

Why Sunday? In a study by Redbooth, Monday is the most productive day of the week. We complete the most tasks at the beginning of the week.
