Free Information Session For Entrepreneurs!
One of the most challenging aspects of being an entrepreneur is the feeling of isolation that comes with having to make decisions alone. Many small business owners yearn for the opportunity to bounce their ideas and predicaments off like-minded entrepreneurs.
Through our Small Business Network, the library strives to bring small business people (and aspiring business people) together, not only with each other, but with experts who can provide guidance and practical advice. The Small Business Network is an ongoing monthly event available at five Toronto libraries--North York Central, Toronto Reference Library, Fairview, Bloor/Gladstone and Agincourt.
On Wednesday June 17, Jane Gertner, an executive-in-residence at ventureLab, will speak at the North York Central library as part of the Small Business Network series. Through its BUILD program, ventureLAB supports new business owners as they plan, launch and expand their enterprises. The company offers workshops taught by experts with extensive entrepreneurial, corporate or professional expertise.
Using her extensive hands-on business experience, Jane Gertner will sit down with a ventureLAB client to discuss the challenges of starting a business, the advantages and disadvantages of being an entrepreneur and the day-to-day demands of running a business. There will be a question and answer session at the end.
If you need information on raising capital, ramping up your sales or how to control business expantion, you won't want to miss this workshop. Best of all, you don't have to dip into your petty cash to participate. Register online for the event.
