February 26, 2021 – Muncie, IN – The Innovation Connector and the Muncie – Delaware County Black Chamber of Commerce have partnered together to bring you a free three-part workshop titled Business Foundations Toolkit.

For most, starting a business is a dream or a mere thought, but taking the necessary steps to start the business goes beyond just a dream. The first question for many entrepreneurs is, “where do I start?” and while most resources are out there, finding, securing, and trusting those resources can be a hassle. In this three-part workshop, you’ll learn the business startup steps you need to take, get answers to specific questions and learn about reliable resources.

Business professionals from the Innovation Connector, Ted Baker and Carter Anderson, will share their entrepreneurial experiences and walk you through the necessary steps to successfully start and grow a business.
