Write Ahead To Launch Business Planning Book and Host Second Vancouver Event for Emerging EntrepreneursPosted by Jessica Oman
Local business plan writing and consulting firm Write Ahead will host the second “From Idea to Open: How to Plan + Launch Your Dream Company” event at the Water Street Profile on November 27, 2013 from 5:30-8 pm. As the only networking event in Vancouver designed specifically for emerging entrepreneurs who are just starting out, From Idea to Open is quickly becoming a must-attend event for new business owners and the organizations that help them thrive.
Speakers include Jill Earthy, BC & Yukon Director of Canadian Youth Business Foundation, and Write Ahead’s founder Jessica Oman. Headlining the event is Maninder Dhaliwal, a 2013 BIV Top Forty Under 40 award winner and Executive Director of Tradeworks BC. Andrea Shillington, founder of local agency Brands for the People, will emcee the evening.
The event is combined with the official launch of Write Ahead’s new digital book, Planning Your Service Business By the Numbers. This guide is designed to help owners of service-based and online businesses get clear about their numbers and learn to understand and create financial projections that guide their companies to success.
“In Vancouver, there isn’t a centralized place where new entrepreneurs can find most of the resources they need to save time and money when they’re just starting out,” says Write Ahead’s founder and event organizer Jessica Oman. “By introducing new business owners to the services and resources they need from the start, while inspiring them with the success stories we want to share, I feel we’re making entrepreneurship more accessible for bootstrapping micro-business owners especially.”
Event sponsors include Facet Advisors, Kashoo Simple Cloud Accounting, Webnames, Small Business Accelerator, Mitsumi Kawai Law Works, Canadian Youth Business Foundation, and Axis Insurance Managers. The event includes appetizers, gift bags for all attendees and door prizes.
Tickets are just $25 ($35 at the door). To register, go to https://ideatoopennov2013.eventbrite.ca/ and for more information, contact the event organizers at .
