MLA Todd Stone will explain how he successfully launched iCompass Technologies during an upcoming business start-up night at Thompson Rivers University.
The first of what is expected to be an annual event hosted by Enactus Thompson Rivers takes place Thursday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m. in the Panorama Room of TRU's International Building.
A non-profit organization, Enactus hopes the expertise and guidance will encourage more entrepreneurs and help businesses thrive, said Enactus president Acacia Schmietenknop.
"Having your own business is really exciting, and Todd's story is really inspirational when you hear about what he had to go through to be an entrepreneur," she said.
Those who attend the free event will learn from local business professionals, and have the opportunity to sign up for low-cost consulting.
Enactus offers a Toolbox mentorship program that includes one-on-one guidance from experienced professionals and TRU students.
