Are you a budding entrepreneur? Or an existing business that needs a financial boost to add a new product line, expand your product or just gain new customers? Apply today to be a participant…… The Entrepreneurs’ Café is designed to encourage the development of an entrepreneurial class in our community. The café will provide a forum where Entrepreneurs can gain exposure while addressing funding needs. Café programs provide small (micro) awards to entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs seeking financial support present their project- 5 minute presentation & 5 minutes for questions/answers from the audience regarding their goals, experience and business plan – when all the presentations are complete, the attendees get to vote for their favorite project. The project that receives the most votes receives the case reward. Members of the community are invited to participate for a $10 fee. This fee is their “investment” in their business community. Dr. Miles Davis, Dean of Harry Byrd Business School at Shenandoah University will be keynote speaker at the event.
