Start-up Expert to Speak in PG Tonight
Prince George, B.C. – Calling all entrepreneurs.
A special guest has been invited by the Innovation Central Society to give a seminar at Hubspace in Prince George tonight.
“Dr. Sean Wise is an accomplished business coach and mentor. He’s as associate professor at Ryerson School of Business and he is the host of The Naked Entrepreneur program,” says executive director Matt Hutcheon.
“He’s also a former advisor to Dragons Den so he’s got a lot of great, high profile experience and a lot of in-depth experience with working in start-up companies and helping people watch their business.”
So, what can people expect to hear?
“He’s going to talk about why now is the best time to be an entrepreneur and he’s going to talk about things like how access to capital is maybe a little easier then it has been in the past through things like crowd funding and other opportunities that exist for people to raise money and to be able to test out ideas before they fully launch.”
Hutcheon says attendees will also learn how to access global markets and how the costs of launching start-ups is cheaper than it used to be.
“You don’t need to have half a million dollars necessarily now to launch a business. There’s lots of stuff you can do for a couple thousand bucks to get rolling and try it out.”
Tonight’s seminar runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. You can purchase tickets by clicking here.
