Apply the BRIDGE Networking MODEL to help you remember that networking is not just about collecting business cards and perfecting your elevator pitch.

Come join me this coming Tuesday for a free Networking workshop – Happy Hour immediately following.
Please share widely – this is open to the public, but registration is recommended because of limited capacity. We all know someone who could use a master’s class in how to network!
Using my years of being a professional “Connector”, I have created an interactive Networking MODEL to help you to remember the most effective tips to successful networking – whether you are looking to boost sales, connect to resources, or find a job opportunity.
In addition, there are free workshops, networking events, and opportunities all week long during #DetroitStartUpWeek.

El Modelo BRIDGE, impulsado por Puente Cultural Integration, fue diseñado para estabilizar o hacer crecer un negocio establecido o para lanzar una idea de negocio. Todo tipo de negocio es bienvenido: locales, tiendas con ventas al público, restaurantes, artesanos o contratistas, negocios de servicios o asesores. El emprendimiento no es para todo el mundo, pero los que desembarcan en esta aventura tienen que prepararse. Diferente a los cursos tradicionales de planificación de negocio, esta serie de talleres ayudará a que los propietarios identifiquen su “¿por qué?” y aún más importante, saldrán con un análisis financiero completo para saber cuál es el punto de salir al ras para que aseguren un negocio rentable. Cada semana tendrán un Plan de Acción para adelantar su negocio, paso a paso, mientras cruzamos el PUENTE hacia el Emprendimiento.

Los expertos presentarán temas:

  • mercadeo
  • análisis financiero
  • contabilidad
  • responsabilidades legales
  • impuestos
  • asesoría individual por parte de mentor / asesor(a) de negocio.

El resultado de esta primera etapa del programa BRIDGE será un Modelo de Negocio completo y un entendimiento de su estado financiero para que puedan tomar decisiones informadas en cuestión del futuro de su negocio. Más importante, les proveeremos las herramientas y recursos para que sus ideas se realicen – comenzando el primer día. ¡Empecemos!

Somos miembros orgullosos y agradecemos el apoyo de
la Red Global Mx – Capítulo Detroit y de la Cámara de Comercio de Farmington. 

We are appreciative of the support and we’re proud members of
Red Global Mx and the Greater Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce.
