Entrepreneuza 2: The Boogaloo
The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG) has announced the second entrepreneuza event. Attend the Entrepreneuza 2 event where Robin Bostrom, Business Specialist from Main Street Iowa, will lead a discussion about the topic “Small Business Help: Planning for Change.”
RSVP on Facebook.
The workshop, titled Entrepreneuza 2: The Boogaloo, will be geared toward succession planning for business owners. This is the second in the Entrepreneuza series. The earlier workshop focused on getting started with a new business venture. More than 50 local entrepreneurs attended that event in the fall of 2017.
The workshop will take place inside the former Lisbon American Legion building, 115 W. Main Street in Lisbon, Iowa.
Volunteer chair of the event Barb Ihde said “Spending some time getting information about succession planning now, instead of waiting until we need it, will give business owners more options.”
Food and beverages will be provided. The cost is free and there is no need to RSVP, just show up.
