A new networking group has been started in Milwaukee for owners and managers of start-up companies, with its inaugural meeting tonight.
The group, Emerging Entrepreneurs, is being coordinated by the Marquette University Kohler Center for Entrepreneurship and the Metro Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC).
The group will focus on “results-based programming.”
Owners of companies that have been in business for more than three years are invited to attend Emerging Entrepreneurs meetings to share their knowledge from a “been there, done that” standpoint with owners of businesses that have been operating for fewer than three years.
Business owners are encouraged to attend one meeting as a “guest” to get a feel for the group and its focus. However, to be eligible for group membership and continued meeting attendance, a company must be a member of the MMAC.
The group’s first meeting is Monday, June 9, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Eve Restaurant, 718 N. Milwaukee St., second floor. Robert Auer of Auer Marketing will present “Marketing on a Tight Budget.” Attendees are asked to bring a sample of their current marketing materials to share and review at the workshop portion of the event. There is a $10 fee at the door.
Meetings will take place on the second Monday of each month, from 3:30 until 5:30 p.m. at a downtown Milwaukee location. Upcoming meeting dates are July 14 and Aug. 11. At the July 14 meeting, Liz Ferris of Ferris Consulting will present “First Impressions, Lasting Impressions.” On Aug. 11, Mark Zellmer of Northern Oak Capital Management will present “Entrepreneurial Finance – Come ready to share your frustration with getting funding as a brand new business.”
