It's my belief we all have specific talents and gifts that were meant to be used for something good. Those particular talents usually turn into hobbies and become our passion. Have you ever wanted to make turn those hobbies into a small business or company? When contemplating getting started with your own business, it's hard to know what to do or what your first step is. You find yourself discussing the idea with your friends and family, and they may not have the best business advice. An entrepreneur center is meant to help you get started and answer the tough questions. Still have your doubts? Let's cover the basics of an entrepreneur center.
An entrepreneur center is designed to foster the startup and growth of businesses and equip entrepreneurs with the right resources and tools. It's a perfect combination of mentorship, access to technology, office space and an innovative culture. That is who we are at The Biz Foundry. We aim to provide motivation and support regardless of what stage your business is in. Commitment like this will help you build your skillset and experience. You will find yourself surrounded by entrepreneurs who share their valuable wisdom and help you on your path.
At entrepreneur centers, support is available for new businesses that often need help in different aspects of their business. When starting a business, it’s hard to know where to start or if your idea is worth pursuing. We help you work through those challenges by discussing your idea with you and going through things to consider.
We connect you with people that will encourage you along the way and potentially serve as mentors. Mentors will often be business founders or leaders with several years of industry experience and connections. When you’re starting out as an entrepreneur, it may feel like your ideas are jumbled together. You may know where you want to go or end up but not sure how to get there or the steps to take. Having a mentor can help you navigate. These valuable connections are essential but can be time consuming and much harder to find if seeking out by yourself.
At The Biz Foundry and other entrepreneur centers, you will meet other business owners and startups in different roles, industries and capacities. Grow your network and develop authentic relationships with those who are travelling down the same road. This sense of camaraderie is crucial when you’re starting and growing a business.
We also offer the latest technology in virtual reality including the HTC Vive, the HoloLens and 3D printing. Your only limitation is your imagination. If you are a co-working member at The Biz Foundry, you will have access to a desk space, wifi, printing and conference rooms.
For us, the best part of working at an entrepreneur center is witnessing a new business being built that will bring something brand new to the marketplace and has the potential to create jobs. We work exclusively with entrepreneurs and startups in the Upper Cumberland.
