Point Positive and Clarkson University Join Forces to Support Entrepreneurs
Point Positive, Inc., in collaboration with Clinton Community College, the North Country Chamber of Commerce, and Clarkson’s Shipley Center for Innovation, will hold a Business Ideation and Entrepreneurship Workshop to help individuals interested in starting their own businesses. This workshop, held at Clinton Community College’s Institute for Advanced Manufacturing (IAM) on Thursday, August 5th, will help aspiring entrepreneurs identify promising ideas and map out the steps for moving forward. The workshop will begin at 1pm and last approximately 2-hours.
This workshop will focus on two separate tracks for aspiring entrepreneurs; one designed to help participants identify an idea and begin to develop a business plan that may eventually lead to the establishment of a new venture, and the other to help advance the planning for entrepreneurs that already have a business concept in mind. Through this workshop, entrepreneurs will also gain access to resources, professional services, and ongoing mentorship to assist in the launch and growth of their business. The workshop will conclude with a networking / social hour and one-on-one meetings if desired.
This event is part of a series of workshops led by staff from Clarkson University’s Shipley Center and Point Positive. The first workshop was held in Canton on July 20th, and future locations will include Ticonderoga, Lowville, and Lake Placid.
This Workshop Series project is made possible by the generous support from Adirondack Foundation’s Generous Acts Program. The grant is being co-funded in part by the Rhoades Family Fund at Adirondack Foundation. Further support for this particular workshop has been generously provided by the North Country Chamber of Commerce and Clinton Community College.
Participants can register and source additional information at www.PointPositive101.com. Those unable to attend in person should still register as all materials will be available to download after the event.
