I’ve been working on a new project over the past few months with a few other folks, and we’re finally almost ready to launch!
The Metropreneur will be a new online media entity devoted to the local small business and entrepreneurial community. Similar to Columbus Underground, the site will feature regular news updates, small business profiles and features, and interactive user-driven content. Additionally, we’ll be hosting an organized and searchable database of small business resources ranging from financial lending options to educational institutions and workshops to marketing tools and assistance.
Our goal is to provide a resource that can assist new and existing small business and boost the Central Ohio region’s small business economic development efforts. We’re already working closely with a wide variety of partners and organizations to help connect their existing programs and resources with the growing Columbus entrepreneurial community.
More information will be coming online soon as we get closer to our August 3rd launch date. Until then, you can keep up with updates via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn below:July 3, 2010 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #384720
