Everywhere you look, someone, somewhere in Columbus is starting a business. And more times than not, it’s a YP taking the reins as entrepreneur.
Have you ever wondered, “How can they afford it?”, “What are the costs involved with starting a new business?” or “How could I do the same thing?”
As part of our ongoing series, whYP Entrepreneurialism in Columbus, Young Professionals of Columbus is hosting a roundtable discussion to tackle the tough questions about funding a new business startup. In addition, the roundtable discussion will feature first-hand stories of success from local entrepreneurs and the experts who helped them navigate the challenges they faced.
The following local entrepreneurs will share their inspirational stories and lead the discussion:
Zack Griffin, Evolved Energy Solutions
Michael Bowers, Director, Central Ohio Small Business Development Center at Columbus State Community College
April Schaad, Agent State Farm Insurance
Mary McCarthy, president, Your Management Team and chair, SCORE, Counselors of America's Small Business
- Karen Shauri, Small Business Development Center
We strongly encourage any other local entrepreneurs or those considering starting a new venture to attend and participate in the roundtable, and most importantly, highlight Columbus as active with people taking on new endeavors.
The event is being held, at where else, the Columbus Chamber, whose goal is to promote economic growth and development in the Columbus region.
The date for this event is September 29th with networking starting at 5:30 p.m., and the discussion starting at 6 p.m. This is not a panel discussion – we want this to be an open dialogue about entrepreneurialism in Columbus in an intimate roundtable setting.
This event is FREE for YPC members and $3 for non-members.
