Entrepreneurs Invited To Join SBDC Roundtables

The University of Iowa Small Business Development Center is co-sponsoring a new program for 2007 to help local entrepreneurs connect with other small-business leaders to help them better manage their enterprises.

The Entrepreneur Roundtable program will bring together eight to 10 non-competitive business owners from Linn, Johnson, or Washington Counties to discuss business and management issues and exchange ideas. Each roundtable will meet monthly throughout the year on a schedule set by its members, and attend a quarterly workshop sponsored by the SBDC with members of all roundtables.

Participants must be the owner, president, or chief executive of a business that is less than five years old and able to commit to attending at least 75 percent of the meetings. The registration fee to join a roundtable is $95. Registration deadline is Jan. 5, 2007.

To register or for more information, contact the Kirkwood College SBDC at (319) 377-8256. The Entrepreneur Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Kirkwood Community College SBDC, Iowa State Bank and Trust, and the Corridor Business Journal.
