The Good Sessions are a series of free workshops where a subject specialist will lead a session on their area of expertise or a particular aspect of business or leadership – equipping you with the tools and information you need to take that next step and thrive. Across five expert-led sessions and as part of the business edition of The Good Sessions, we will cover topics such as how to bring your business idea to life, understanding the legal structure of your business, digital branding development, marketing and communication, and how to raise alternative funding.
As part of this session, Izzy will cover:
- Understanding what funding options are available
- Understanding that those options can be complementary to each other and not just alternative
- Understanding at what stage a business needs to be to pursue those options
Izzy will also answer live questions from the audience towards the end of the event.
**Black business owners and aspiring Black entrepreneurs, this is for you**
