The next 425 Launch — a free forum designed for entrepreneurs — is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 17 at Edmonds City Hall, 121 5th Ave. N., in the Brackett Room from 5:30-7:30 pm.
This session will be devoted to entrepreneurs engaging with each other in small group discussions around the following topics: 1) Barriers/challenges to launching your company; 2) How you determine a “good idea” or if your product or service is “marketable”; 3) How to determine your “most suitable” role if you expand; 4) “time management” or “clear priorities” – which is the critical factor and what have you done that’s been successful and/or unsuccessful; 5) Best “promotional, marketing, networking, and referral” methods that have worked for you; 6) Your “accounting knowledge” level and have you sought professional help. After the small group discussion, each group will present their key points to the rest of the participants for a continuation of this exchange of personal experiences.
If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, are about to start a new business or have already started one, this discussion forum could be just the place you want to be. 425 Launch, a program of the Edmonds Chamber, seeks to strengthen our community by promoting and fostering entrepreneurship. “By providing a forum for aspiring and existing entrepreneurs to exchange ideas and experiences, we can improve communication and strengthen entrepreneurship in the Edmonds community,” the chamber said in a news release.
