Entrepreneurs4Change/Lending4Change and Hub LA would like to invite you to a free Social Business Entrepreneur Orientation Event - Are You Ready to Start a Social Business?

This 2.5-hour introductory event is specifically for those entrepreneurs who are:
1. Launching a new business effort designed to help the community
2. Who need the training to pull it off
3. Access to the capital to make it happen.

By attending this introductory orientation, you can join Ron Schultz, from Entrepreneurs4Change, author of the forth coming, Social Entrepreneurial Industry Bible, to be published by Palgrave Macmillan, and William Crookston, from the USC Grief Social Entrepreneurial Center, and learn how you can get the education and access to capital you need. If you’re starting a business related to the “green” marketplace, including urban farming, or if you have a business idea that addresses poverty-related concerns, or educational-support programs, senior services or even medical access, you should join us for this introductory session on November 1st.

The Orientation is co-sponsored by, among others, the Lending4Change Credit Union Network – The USC Credit Union, Episcopal Credit Union, Water and Power Credit Union and the Pacoima Development Credit Union, as well as Green Economy Think Tank and Hub LA. Invitations will be going out to members of all our credit union partners as well as community groups, student organizations, and local human services organizations to invite all interested entrepreneurs to join us. But space is limited. RSVP, today at [email protected].

The Orientation Meeting is free to all respondents and open to all forms of social business entrepreneurs. The follow-up Entrepreneurs4Change Business Workshop, a two-weekend course for entrepreneurs is a requirement to participate in our Access to Capital program. The only charge for the course for those who sign-up at our orientation meeting is a $25 materials fee.

If you are ready to start a social business and become the entrepreneur you have always wanted to be, it begins here. Join us and discover what opportunities could emerge for you, your community, and your futur
