If you know an entrepreneur with a great idea or business but needs additional networking, mentorship, access to finance etc – then forward this email to them -so they can register and benefit from workshops and an opportunity to win GET IN THE RING 2020.

Talking about entrepreneurs – if you need a high quality printer – check out the JEB ad in today’s CBR – there is a warehouse sale with massive price reductions.
