Members of StartUp Jefferson City are working hard to get the word out about the upcoming Encouraging Entrepreneurship Event scheduled for April 26th at the Capital Event Center.  The event will offer entrepreneurs an opportunity to interact in a one-on-one setting with local business professionals and receive business counseling at no cost. 

“This is a great opportunity for individuals with a business idea to obtain valuable guidance from business experts in seven distinct fields,” said Shaun Sappenfield, Existing Business Manager with the Jefferson City Chamber of Commerce.  “We encourage anyone who is in the planning stages of their business idea to attend this event.”  StartUp Jefferson City has secured the talents of business professionals from seven separate business sectors and each will be available to answer questions during the event.
