Local entrepreneurs can begin their year on the right foot: Entrepreneurs Assembly (EA) Carson starts the New Year on a new schedule: the second Wednesday of the month from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Entrepreneurs, #startups, small businesses, even people working on a new business idea are welcome. There is no charge to participate, and meetings are held at The Studio at Adams Hub, 177 W. Proctor, in Carson City.
EA is a Nevada non-profit whose mission is growing opportunity and prosperity throughout the state through entrepreneurship and #innovation. There are now thriving chapters in Reno, South Lake and Incline. EA also launches chapters in 2017 at UNLV and Henderson, Nevada.
During each meeting, round tables facilitated by experienced volunteer business #mentors who act as a “virtual business incubator” in which participants work on their business, not in their business. Confidentiality is key, as members discuss their business #challenges. Mentors and peers alike join in the lively interactions, and the #entrepreneur formulates a plan of action for the next 30 days. (EA is not a #networking or leads group, though networking happens and business leads often occur.)
“The beauty of this format is that it creates accountability for entrepreneurs, who are generally accustomed to going it alone,” says Matt Westfield, the founder of EA. “This helps keep them on track, moving forward, and making progress. Just as important, our members are able to discuss challenges and concerns that they may not even share with their family members. Our motto is founders helping founders.
Since its inception in 2011, EA has provided support to over 1,000 Nevada entrepreneurs.
