Transforming The Landscape of Business In AmericaTime is running out my friends. You only have a few days left to register for one of the most exciting and worthwhile events to hit our region in quite some time. Transforming The Landscape of Business In America: A Minority Business Early-Stage Capital Summit will truly be a game changing experience for those that make the investment. As I recognize that times are hectic right now with the holidays upon us and a host of year-end activities pulling us in many directions, I thought I would provide a little food for thought as you consider whether attending this event is truly worth your time. So without further ado, here are my top 12 reasons why you should be at The Intercontinental Hotel on December 3rd:

  1. To better understand how growing diverse and inner city businesses positively impacts ALL citizens in the region
  2. To hear new and positive messages and strategies relative to growth, hope and prosperity for our community
  3. To learn new and innovative approaches to growing more vibrant job creating companies in the midst of rapidly changing technologies
  4. To best position your business or business idea for investment consideration as you kick off 2010
  5. To learn and adopt new strategies for creating wealth as an investor and/or business owner
  6. To better understand the emerging markets and industries if you are even considering entrepreneurship
  7. To better understand the challenges and pitfalls of growing a successful company and how to address these concerns
  8. To clearly understand precisely what investors are looking for when they choose to invest in a business venture
  9. To understand the unique and critical differences between what a bank looks for versus what an investor looks for
  10. To better understand how to position your business for alternative forms of capital when traditional credit is so difficult to come by
  11. To see live investor presentations from diverse entrepreneurs that are currently raising capital for their high growth businesses
  12. To network and build relationships with some of the nation’s foremost thought leaders in creating wealth in challenging environments

I could certainly add to this list, but I imagine you get the idea. We can only guarantee seating at the event if you register in advance by no later than the close of business on Monday, November 30th. Don’t miss out on this rare and groundbreaking opportunity designed to give you the specific information you need to chart your path to success in the coming year.

Hope to see you there!
