Fivver® Sponsors Small Business Workshop for Detroit’s Inner-City Residents
CLEVELAND, OH – November 02, 2015 – The Greek All-Star™ Awards™ today announced that Fivver®, the global marketplace for creative and professional services starting at $5, has teamed up with entrepreneur Tim Carthon to serve as title sponsor for his traveling SBI Workshop™. And, in the spirit of Fivver®, the workshop only cost attendees five bucks.
“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.”
Carthon, a Cleveland, Ohio native, at-risk youth advocate, and keynote speaker, created The SBI Workshop™ (Startup Business Infrastructure Workshop) to help aspiring entrepreneurs – who live in the inner city – by guiding them from the concept to development stage of their business, right within the workshop.
“Most workshops just tell you what to do to be successful, then send you on your way,” said Carthon. “This workshop helps seedling entrepreneurs set the correct path from the outset by showing them specifically what to do.”
Carthon held his first workshop in his hometown last month and has teamed up with presenting partner Developing K.I.D.S to bring the second one to Detroit. Developing K.I.D.S Founder Kimberly Newberry said she saw the workshop as an opportunity for the families of the youth they serve, many of whom are attempting to re-invent themselves as a result of a weakened job market. It fits their mission.
“This is another resource, another opportunity we can provide,” says Newberry.
The event will be held on Sat. Nov. 14, 2015 at Developing K.I.D.S. Headquarters, 22519 Plymouth Road, Detroit, Michigan, 48239 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. To register for Tim Carthon’s SBI Workshop™ visit TimCarthon.com.
