Fivver®-Sponsored Business Workshop Comes to Toledo’s Inner City
CLEVELAND, OH – December 03, 2015 – Announced today, Fivver®, the global marketplace for creative and professional services starting at $5, has teamed up again with entrepreneur Tim Carthon to serve as title sponsor for his traveling SBI (Startup Business Infrastructure) Workshop, this time in Toledo, OH. And, in the spirit of Fivver®, the workshop will continue to only costs 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™ to help aspiring entrepreneurs – who live in inner cities – 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,” says Carthon. “This workshop helps seedling entrepreneurs set the correct path from the outset by showing them specifically what to do.”
Since Oct., Carthon has held workshops in Cleveland, Ohio at the Carthon Conservatory, in Detroit, Michigan where he teamed up with presenting partner Developing K.I.D.S., and in Warrensville Heights, Ohio where he held three (3) workshops at the 13th Annual HBCU College Fair. The next SBI Workshop™ will be presented by the Toledo-based performing arts company My5tery Music™, held at the Frederick Douglass Community Center, 1001 Indiana Ave, Meeting Room 2 (3rd Floor), in Toledo, OH 43697, on Sat. Dec. 19, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“This opportunity is not only a beneficial tool for those who experience it, it allows my business to give back to someone who helped me,” said Errick Dixon, Executive Director of My5tery Music™, a current client of Mr. Carthon’s SBI consulting business.
