Join us for a free half-day course in the basics of starting, running, and growing your own small business. The event will be led by tech entrepreneur Brian Hamilton, who has been featured in Inc., Forbes, Fortune, Entrepreneur, U.S. News, MSNBC, and Fox Business. Hamilton understands what it means to start small — his first businesses were a landscaping service and coin laundromat. He went on to found Sageworks, the nation’s first financial technology company, which he sold in May in one of the largest exits in North Carolina history.
Pierre “Pee” Thomas and Kevin “Coach K” Lee, founders of hip-hop’s record-breaking label, Quality Control Music, and Billboard’s 2018 “Executives of the Year”, will deliver the keynote presentation and share what they have learned about entrepreneurship through launching one of the world’s hottest hip-hop labels.
Come as you are – there is no dress code. The event is free, but pre-registration through Eventbrite is required.
By the end of the event, you will have the basics for starting a business and beginning your new entrepreneurial life. Learn from people who have been exactly where you are and who have become successful.
