Entrepreneurship Workshop - Open For Business

$49

with Jim Potter West Bay Rotary

Are you thinking of starting your own business? West Bay Rotary Club of Camden presents their annual class for budding entrepreneurs. There's a school of thought that entrepreneurship cannot be taught in an academic setting; it is generally learned by trial & error, or by where the rubber meets the road. Members of West Bay Rotary who either own, or have owned successful businesses, subscribe to the "rubber meets the road" school of thought. They will serve as class speakers and pannel discussion members on varied topics related to starting and running a new business. A staff member of the Maine Department of Economic & Community Development will talk with the class about its resources available to new entrepreneurs in Maine.
