Unit of 1 networking event - Tales from the Trenches - Thursday, November 17th - 8 am - 10:30 am - Villanova University (RSVP)
Ever wonder how others are successfully running their small business?
Want advice from those who are actually in-the-trenches, not just talking about what it takes to be successful?
Want to find out what others have done right, and not so right, as they’ve founded, built, grown, and even sold their companies?
We’ve assembled a panel of solo entrepreneurs who’ve been living the reality of running a small business. The panel will be moderated by Andrea Michalek, President of 1-800-CTO and Managing Director of Unit of 1.
Panelists will include:
Daniel Endy, President of Endy Associates. At the inception of the World Wide Web revolution in early 1995, Daniel founded Web Access Inc., a professional services firm focused on creating advanced Web-based systems for eCommerce which merged with a competitor to form US Interactive. As a co-founder of US Interactive, Daniel and was responsible for technology and production services as this Web professional services firm grew to over 250 employees and $20 million in revenue, with 5 locations nationwide, and a successful IPO in August of 1999. Currently, Daniel is President of Endy Associates, which specialized in strategic consulting for startups and emerging growth companies. Daniel sometimes joins client firms to help them handle critical phases in their development.
Marge King, President of InfoRich Group, Inc., a management-consulting firm, which provides cost-effective support to both nonprofit and for-profit organizations particularly in the areas of market research, prospect research, and proposal writing. Ms. King, the former Director of Advancement and Corporate Secretary at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, has extensive experience in the nonprofit sector and has been part of the executive management team for two internationally recognized nonprofit institutions. Marge is also a member of the adjunct faculty at Delaware County Community College where she teaches business and fundraising courses and is an instructor for the Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Philadelphia Chapter.
Alan Preston, President of Preston Performance Learning. Alan has over 20 years experience as an HR executive, most notably at Sprint Communications and eBay, Inc. He has managed several mergers and acquisitions from the HR perspective just after the AT&T divestiture and the more recent dot com boom, when talent retention was critical. He currently runs Preston Performance Learning, Philadelphia-based management training firm. Alan is approaching his 1 year anniversary as a solo entrepreneur, and will round out the panel with those early lessons learned when starting a solo business.
Nearly 75% of all businesses in the US are single person businesses, yet there is very little support and information available for the solo entrepreneur. Unit of 1 is a group that strives to change all that. We connect these very small business owners together – both online and at face to face networking events. The results are always astounding – business gets referred, strategic alliances form, and ideas for how to get over the next hurdle facing your business get exchanged.
Come out on November 17th and be a part of the network!
