Starting and growing a business is hard work
and takes more than just a great idea. CED is a community that connects
entrepreneurs to the network, knowledge and capital they need.
CED NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
next year, CED will be implementing some game-changing initiatives to help
entrepreneurs not only "start something,” but grow and scale their businesses. Additional funding before our fiscal year-end,
June 30, 2013, will enable us to get started sooner.
Some items we’d like to start working on now:
Website Enhancements: CED
needs a fresh, more accessible and easy-to-navigate website. Not only do we want to provide easier access
to resources, calendars and member information, we want our website to reflect
CED’s power to connect, educate and support.
CED-Venture Mentoring Service (CED-VMS)
CED-VMS, a team mentoring program, is the most sought out service CED
offers. It is completely free for
entrepreneurs. There are currently 140-plus
ventures and volunteer mentors in the program, with more applications waiting
to be reviewed. A robust tracking and
management software system will help us provide better service to participants
Upgrades: CED replaces aging equipment on a regular
basis, but some of our equipment decided it was on a different schedule. We
need to upgrade a few laptops for staff members. This will help us be more efficient and allow
us to put our dollars to work for entrepreneurs versus spending it on repairs.
