Description

It takes undiluted passion, multiple failures, lot of grit and a long-term commitment. The art of starting a business require entrepreneurs to be on their toes most of the times, shuttling between customers; current, prospective, business partners, business operations and more. COVID-19 has affected entrepreneurs and their businesses hard and they have to innovate and adjust. In efforts to support the local small business community and empower [new and seasoned] entrepreneurs, the Entrepreneurship Matters series will offer a forum to feature, celebrate and learn of the highs and lows of the business ownership journey.

Alicia Wilson, Vice President of Economic Development, The Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Health System will moderate the August 13th webinar with guests from Higher Ground Transportation Services and Lexi's Lil Bug, two transportation services companies.
