GASA Founder and Largest Online Services Marketplace Team Up to Help Start 50 Inner-City Businesses

CLEVELAND, OH – September 08, 2015 – The Greek All-Star™ Awards™ today announced that its Executive Director has secured Title Sponsorship for his upcoming SBI Workshop™.

Tim Carthon, a Cleveland native, at-risk youth advocate, and keynote speaker, and Fiverr® International, the world’s largest marketplace for creative and professional services, have completed sponsorship agreement for Tim Carthon’s inner-city startup business workshop.  The SBI Workshop™, which stands for Startup Business Infrastructure Workshop, focuses on taking aspiring business owners and guiding them from the concept to develop stage of their business, right within the workshop.

The biggest hurdle for aspiring business owners is fear; fear of the unknown,” says Tim Carthon, GASA Founder/Executive Director and SBI Workshop™ Creator, “Most workshops just tell you what to do to be successful, and then send you on your way.  What I do is not only remove the fear, but help seedling entrepreneurs set the correct path from the outset by showing them specifically what to and what not to do, not just telling them.  It’s all hands-on.  This minimizes future problems that can mentally set back individual business owners and potentially cause catastrophic consequences to their business success.”

At Fiverr®, our vision is to shape the future of work, everyday,” says Adam Swart, Marketing Director at Fiverr® International, “We know aspiring business owners crave the type of actionable examples, knowledge and insights that the SBI Workshop delivers.  So we’re not only proud to sponsor, but Fiverr® is eager to help Mr. Carthon, through his SBI Workshops, inspire success in these future business leaders.

Tim Carthon’s two-part inaugural SBI Workshop™, sponsored by Fiverr®, is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, September 29-30, 2015, at the Carthon Conservatory in Cleveland, OH.  Times and tickets are available at HERE.  To schedule an interview, Contact Tim Carthon.
