We are Building up Businesses & Bringing Art Downtown
First, a look back at last week’s back-to-back business classes…
It was a full house at Thursday’s Branding 101 workshop, the first in our Small Business Branding series. Every seat in our conference room was filled by an East Bay entrepreneurs looking for—and sharing—information about creating, maintaining, and communicating their business’ brand. Then, on Friday, we hosted our monthly Business Master Mind for Women Entrepreneurs meet-up. The cohort has been growing since we launched this meet-up in February. “Stand with what you have” are words of wisdom that resonated with the entire group. Participants from both workshops include entrepreneurs from diverse background and working in a variety of industries including self-care, beauty, food, medical services, and law.

And now, announcing two new events happening at our office this month
First up: Finance Your Business workshop on April 24. From local banks to community lenders, there are many options available to fund your new or existing business. All business owners and entrepreneurs are invited to join us for this free, informative workshop to learn more about the type of business loans available, hear lenders share what they look for in potential borrowers, get tips to improve your chances of getting your application approved, and meet and network with lenders directly.
Then on Saturday, April 27, all are invited to a reception and artist panel discussion for the inaugural Art Through Transition exhibition series. The Spring 2019 show features works from The Art of Living Black 2019 artists: Brenda Macauley, Elmarise Owens, Stephen Bruce, and Malik Seneferu. Put this show on your calendar, invite a friend, and come Downtown to enjoy incredible art, refreshments, and artist discussion.
