KEEN to Host 'Start a Biz: Create Your Own Job' Panel Discussion on Nov. 3rd

ZCC PanelHave you always been curious about starting your own business? Are you looking for work after being laid off or caring for family? Are you retired but not finished working? Or did you recently graduate? This panel of entrepreneurs has been there (and is there) and has advice for you.

With unemployment over 12% in Oregon, many talented people are exploring their entrepreneurial urges and developing a healthy curiosity about starting their own business. With any venture, it helps to get advice from folks who have ‘been there, done that’ and are willing to share their hard-earned wisdom.

The Zimmerman Community Center (ZCC) presents a panel and moderator composed of seasoned business owners and founders who are generous with their advice and expertise. Randy Miller will moderate panelists Michelle Cairo (In the Black), Robin Jones (88 Inc.), Otto Papasadero (Marto Consulting) and Sarah Shaoul (Black Wagon). Panelists will answer questions from the moderator and from the audience.

ZCC will have resources that serve small business and start-ups available.

WHEN: NOVEMBER 3, 2009 from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

WHERE: KEEN  at 926 NW 13th Ave. #210 Portland, Ore.

COST: This event is free and open to the public. Invite those you know with the same or similar questions for where ever they are in their life and career.
