The Network Journal/National Minority Business Council, Inc.’s fall season Entrepreneurship Boot Camp will be held on Friday, September 16, and Saturday, September 17, at BNY Mellon, 101 Barclay Street, New York City. The intensive two-day course covers the fundamentals of planning and operating a business, as well as techniques and resources for success. Boot campers will be guided through the rigors of survival and growth in today’s difficult financial and economic environment by instructors who also are experienced entrepreneurs.

“In today’s uncertain economic environment it is imperative that entrepreneurs have the opportunity to be part of a growing, dedicated network of businesses worldwide to share ideas, solutions, opportunities and best practices. The TNJ/NMBC Boot Camp offers such an opportunity,” said John F. Robinson, President/CEO of the NMBC. “Much of the current national political debate centers on the need to create jobs. It is the entrepreneur who will solve this problem, be it by growing or starting a company.”

The final 2011 Boot Camp will be held December 2-3 at BNY Mellon, a Boot Camp sponsor. No more than 20 individuals are selected to participate in the two-day program, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on both days. “Participating in the Boot Camp allowed me to work on my business not just work in my business,” one Boot Camp alumnus said.

Participants receive a one-year subscription to The Network Journal, and a six-month membership in the National Minority Business Council, Inc., ensuring them the benefit of continuity. For more information, go to www.nmbc.org, or call (212) 693-5050.
