TNJ/NMBC Entrepreneurship Boot Camp



November 2, 2011?The National Minority Business Council, Inc., continues its commitment to entrepreneurial development with a focus on international trade at its next Entrepreneurial Boot Camp. The December 2-3 Boot Camp will teach participants how to operate in today?s fast paced, technology driven, culturally sensitive global marketplace.

As in the past, the Boot Camp will provide the basics for starting and succeeding in business. However, the tools and techniques for engaging in international business will be emphasized at this session, the last for 2011. Firms and individuals with the requisite skills and contacts can take advantage of the opportunities that abound in the global market.

The December session will be led by experts from the private sector and government, and who have extensive experience and contacts in the international business community. They include Man-Li Kuo Lin, Business Development Specialist with the U.S. Small Business Administration; Marie-Ange Leon, Logistics Manager, Raytex Industries Inc.; Professor D.O.N. Green, President, Sunsplash Productions; and Fritz-Earle Mc Lymont, Managing Director, NBMBC Global.

Special attention will be paid to the emerging markets of China and Africa, both of which are realizing tremendous economic growth and increasing trade with the United States. The NMBC recently participated in the 15th China International Fair for Investment and Trade in Xiamen, China, as part of the organization?s goal of building an entrepreneurial bridge between U.S. and China for small, minority and women-owned businesses. NMBC has been actively involved in Africa for many years.

Boot Camp participants will receive a six-month membership in the NMBC, where they can benefit from expert assistance in the development and execution of their entrepreneurial endeavor, as well as network with experienced member companies. They will also receive a one-year subscription to The Network Journal, one of the northeast region?s leading small-business magazines and a sponsor of the Boot Camp.

The two-day program, from Friday, December 2, to Saturday, December 3, costs $150. It will be held at BNY Mellon, 101 Barclay St., New York, NY 10286, from 8:30 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. each day. BNY Mellon is also a sponsor of the Boot Camp.
