We are excited about people like you, growing businesses, and the opportunity that is in Ashtabula County right now. TODAY is a great time to begin drafting your business plan and gathering the financial information you will need to complete it. Once you've completed a rough draft, that will be the ideal time to set up a meeting with our management team.
About Our Monthly Class & Meeting
Monthly Info Session
NEO Fund’s monthly info sessions will introduce aspiring entrepreneurs to the services The NEO Fund provides to turn their business ideas into reality. The info sessions will provide an overview of the Fund’s training, mentoring, funding and also offer a brief overview of a business model canvas.
The NEO Fund’s 4 week go.Biz.GROW program is designed to help small businesses and entrepreneurs develop their business concepts into a detailed business plan. The course covers areas such as financial literacy, market research, cash flow, projections and much more. At the end of the 4 weeks participants will leave the class with a business plan.
One of the only flaws in economic development here seems to be access to information. So, we are gathering a reasonably small circle to discuss a concept I would call “Thank God It’s Friday in Ashtabula” (TGIFA).
The idea would be a 5:30-7:00 gathering at Briquettes, 3rd floor one Friday of each month. It would begin with 30 minutes of sharing “the latest” we’re hearing about projects in the county, followed by an hour of noshing and networking.
No politics, no credit and no mission other than democratising information. Hope to see you at one of these events.
