No one knows startup life better than the people who've been there, so we partnered with our friends at Gem PR & Media to line up a diverse group of local entrepreneurs so that you can hear it all straight from the starters themselves, in an intimate fireside chat environment. You'll hear about their origin story, their milestones and pain points, their industry-specific knowledge, and best of all, their key words of wisdom for those of you who are just starting out.

Strategic Growth Series: Scaling Your Team

Session II: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 10:00 AM-11:30 PM Scaling Your Team: Adding 1, adding 100

Growing businesses discover early on that scaling their teams is as challenging as scaling their products as they are bringing them to market. Many growing companies find that it is not a lack of ideas, software, or manufacturing capacity that limits their growth. Instead, the limiting factor is often how they are able to grow their teams from the core founders toward a sustainable workforce. Even scaling a team by one or two people can be a challenge, this seminar will offer some entry points as to how to frow your team successfully to any size.

Financial Literacy for Women Series Session I: What's your current financial position?

Session I: Thursday, September 26, 2019 from 6:00 PM-7:30 PM What's your current financial position? This session will cover the importance of a net worth statement to identify current assets and debt, preparing a budget, and setting financial goals.

 

Low financial literacy rates dramatically impact the lives of women, demanding that they work harder, take more time to pay debts and, sometimes settle for earning less. Managing money in the midst of life’s other priorities is no easy task, and women of all ages and backgrounds struggle with the pressure to earn enough, access/pay for education, care for a family, plan retirement, and enjoy everyday pleasures.


Taking the initiative to educate yourself about complex financial decisions will help you achieve your next major milestone, with every informed financial decision you make getting you closer to that end-goal. Facilitated by Julie Krehbiel, CFP, our series will provide participants with the information and strategies needed to improve their financial welfare.

Cost: Event attendance is free to Innovate Springfield members and $40/full series to non-members. Please note that participants are asked to commit to the full 4-part series. Participants in this series will have the opportunity to book 15-minute consultations with our subject-matter expert, Julie Krehbiel, CFP.

We have lots of words for change: growth, development, innovation, improvement, disruption, crisis, adapting, responding and so on. Nevertheless, even good changes can be challenging and exhausting - and even good changes can disrupt our businesses in unforeseen ways. This seminar will help you learn how to manage and integrate change in your business so that your ability to anticipate and respond to change improves over time.
