Deb (our office manager at Kimmel) and I are getting ready for another great Inventors, Investors & Entrepreneurs (I2E) meeting.
The meeting will begin with a networking social at 5:30 PM. It is being sponsored by Auburn Development Council and Tri-Valley Bank in Talmage, NE.
The meeting will feature a guest speaker at 6 PM: Lora Damme is the President and CEO of Tri-Valley Bank of Talmage, NE. She is also an entrepreneur. Ms. Damme will share down-to-earth, common sense tips for developing and maintaining positive relationship with bankers.
Immediately following, Bill Hawkins (aka “Farmer Bill”), a wild crafter and entrepreneur will present information about the effectiveness of using images and technology to market businesses. Each business has a unique story to tell, and Farmer Bill will present information on how he does this for his enterprise. Farmer Bill will also provide some inspiration and motivation for the evening.
Anyone interested in exploring the idea of developing a product, starting their own business or expanding on current business skills, is invited to attend.
The Club is a collaborative effort by a regional group in Southeast Nebraska and has been made possible by funding from a Building Entrepreneurial Communities Act (BECA) grant. There is a $10 per session fee or participants may choose to join the club and pay a small annual membership fee.
We hope to see you at the Kimmel Education & Research Center in Nebraska City, NE (www.kimmel.unl.edu) for a truly inspiring evening. E-mail me at Kimmel if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
