About this Event

Join our FREE event to help you overcome the barriers that may be stopping you from starting a business or preventing you from taking that next step.

COVID-19 has changed the way we think, shop, work, interact. Never has it been a better time to start your business. In fact, 2020 was a record-breaking year for new business start-ups.

Starting a business is challenging. You ask yourself many questions:

How can I fund my start-up?

How do I find my first customer(s)?

Can I overcome the fear of failure?

Will I make a profit?

These are important questions to ask yourself, but don’t let them stop you. During our event, we will break down these challenges and turn them into small steps to help get your business started.
