Do you have a business plan that could use some help getting fleshed out? Want an opportunity to network with peers and connect with small business resource providers?

Join us for another chance to present your big idea to a community of thinkers just like you! Presented by the Lancaster City Alliance and Assets, Cultivate Lancaster is a free workshop for budding entrepreneurs to connect with influential thinkers and doers and learn about the many resources and small business support services that are available in the community.

What’s New:

Thanks to the feedback we’ve received from previous Cultivate Lancaster attendees, we’ve reconfigured the event program a bit. In addition to plenty of networking and the opportunity to participate in a Pitch & Brew, we’re excited to introduce some new features, including:

• Focused breakout sessions :: From expert advice on registering your business or building a marketing plan to tips on finding funding or the perfect place for your office, the breakout sessions are a great chance to learn more about the topics that are important to you.

• One-on-one mentoring :: Take advantage of an opportunity to meet with a SCORE business mentor to discuss and gain insight on the unique challenges you are facing.

Head to www.cultivatelancaster.com for a full listing of the breakout session topics and presenters, as well as a comprehensive list of the many resource providers that are available to help you grow your innovative ideas into a thriving business!

Fig Lancaster: City of Makers

LANCASTER IS A CITY of makers. Creating. Innovating. Collaborating.
There is a rhythm to our city. It’s fast. It’s authentic. It has soul. There is a sense of community. It’s fun. It’s fresh. It has flavor.
