How long have you been dreaming about opening your own business? A few months? Several years?

It’s time to stop dreaming and learn what steps you need to take to plan and launch the business you’ve always wanted to own. You can do it – and at this exciting event on November 27, we’ve collected a group of inspirational people and community resources to show you how.

It’s also the official launch party for Write Ahead’s new book, From Idea to Open: Planning Your Service Business By the Numbers. It’s the first in a series of books focused on helping you understand the money side of doing business – and it’s meant for new entrepreneurs who are a little scared of tackling this challenging but exciting task! Find out more here.

On November 27, join Write Ahead and close to 100 entrepreneurs from 5:30-8 pm for an evening of networking with the people and organizations that will get you from ‘idea’ to ‘open’ sooner. There will be about 30 minutes of networking and then our three speakers will each have 15 minutes to get you inspired to start your business sooner. Stick around for appetizers and lots more networking at our beautiful waterfront venue.

Our presenters are respected folks in Vancouver’s business community who love to work with entrepreneurs like you:
