Our December Meet-Up will host Andrea Ormeño, the director of the Queens Women's Business Center. She will talk about the resources QWBC offers to women who are both starting new businesses and growing existing businesses -- for instance, counseling and advisory services, a startup business plan competition with a $10K prize, inexpensive company registration, minority- and women-owned certification (useful for businesses that sell to government agencies and big corporations), the Kiva microlending program and the center's Power Networking Breakfast series.
We will also be hosting a board member from Rock Soup, who will be providing us more information on it's fundraising and application process.
Additional project topics will be discussed and the first half hour is designated for a meet and greet. Please come! Bring a dish or a drink to share. Meet your community.
