Business Start-Up Event Comes to Boonville
Grow Mid-Missouri, the entrepreneurial development group has announced that their next small business start-up event will be held in Boonville on Tuesday, July 9th.
Grow Mid-Missouri is a partnership that was formed by Moberly Area Economic Development, Moberly Area Community College and the Moberly Area Chamber of Commerce to bring the resources needed to those interested in starting their own business. The partnership is working with the Boonville Area Chamber of Commerce to aid those in Cooper and Howard Counties as well as Mid-Missouri in starting new local businesses.
The event coming to Boonville is PitchOn. PitchOn allows entrepreneurs that have worked through the process of developing their business idea through coaching and mentoring to meet with perspective investors. The investors and financiers have the ability to bring to the table the capital needed to support the starting of a new business.
"Grow Mid-Missouri was designed to support new business," said Dan Lobina, Director of the Small Business Development and Technology Center at Moberly Area Community College. "This is all about helping those interested in starting a business to be successful."
Lobina, who serves Grow Mid-Missouri as its Coaching Coordinator went on to say that Grow Mid-Missouri has the tools to help individuals starting a new business. "We assign the entrepreneur a coach to work with them on their business plan and financial projections," said Lobina. "We can even bring to the table mentors in various areas of business that can provide guidance specific to the business itself."
"We wanted to be a part of this partnership," said Kim Krajicek-Alberts. "This is a way to bring additional resources to the people of Boonville and the surrounding areas that are interested in starting a new business."
"The time couldn't be better for those who always wanted to run their own business to do the work necessary to get started and work towards being successfully," said Lobina.
