The Entrepreneur’s Source, a leading franchise coaching network with more than 230 offices in the United States and Canada, is inviting all aspiring business owners to participate in the second Start a Business Weekend Event either in-person or through virtual technology from Thursday, May 3rd to Saturday, May 5th.
At the highly-successful initial virtual Start a Business Weekend Event in March 2012, over 1,200 aspiring franchise owners spent hours logged onto the virtual event; downloaded over 3,000 documents with franchise discovery information from the exhibitors; and at least half the visitors attended at least one of four keynote presentations in the virtual auditorium. Each attendee was given a 60-day free pass to revisit the showcase after the initial weekend to continue their research.
Together with partner ON24, the global leader in virtual events and webcasting technologies, The Entrepreneur’s Source is once again playing host to this leading edge franchise industry virtual exposition, scheduled for three days: from Thursday, May 3rd t0 Saturday, May 5th.
“Our virtual events are targeting the new breed of franchise candidates who uses technology, specifically the Internet, to begin their search for a franchise investment,” says Terry Powell, CEO and founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source. “Giving the aspiring entrepreneur access to many franchise options with representatives to speak with and company documentation, from the comfort of their living room, is a very efficient use of time and money for both the seeker and the franchisor.”
Aside from the virtual event, people can also attend the Atlanta Franchise Showcase in person, to be held on Friday, May 4th and Saturday, May 5th at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel, 2450 Galleria Parkway in Atlanta.
Both Start a Business Weekend events are self-guided events where attendees can speak with representatives from many different brands, learn how to finance their new business, access resource materials and videos on many business concepts, and learn from live presentations from industry professionals on what it takes to be successful in business.
