Entrepreneurs Invited To Join SBDC Roundtables

The University of Iowa Small Business Development Center is co-sponsoring a new program for 2007 to help local entrepreneurs connect with other small-business leaders to help them better manage their enterprises.

The Entrepreneur Roundtable program will bring together eight to 10 non-competitive business owners from Linn, Johnson or Washington Counties to discuss business and management issues and exchange ideas. Each roundtable will meet monthly throughout the year on a schedule set by its members, and attend a quarterly workshop sponsored by the SBDC with members of all roundtables.

Participants must be the owner, president or chief executive of a business that is less than five years old and who can commit to attending at least 75 percent of the meetings. The registration fee to join a roundtable is $95. Registration deadline is Jan. 5, 2007.

To register or for more information, contact the Kirkwood College SBDC at (319) 377-8256. The Entrepreneur Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Kirkwood Community College SBDC, Iowa State Bank and Trust and the Corridor Business Journal.

For more information about the University of Iowa SBDC, contact Paula McMartin at, or by calling (319) 335-3742. Information is also available on the Web at
