Starting and successfully growing a business is a dream for many people. It can be a long and lonely road to success or perhaps - failure. It doesn't have to be that way; being part of a supportive entrepreneurial community is one of the keys to ensure the success of your venture.
Support and advice and access to knowledge and mentoring are the key elements identified as required by start-ups and growing companies.
We should all be only too willing to help at a time of drought. We would hope that with the wealth of talent within our community and elsewhere, we could help our fellow colleagues raise funds, source advice & make connections for their latest "adventure". If so, this is the place to discuss it, swap hints and tips, provide online mentoring and maybe find those elusive funds. It is not a place to advertise your services, but rather Pay It Forward for the help that you may have received in the past, within these walls.
3Cs is an active community of over 1,000 members, where advice and critique comes free-of-charge for the budding entrepreneur, especially at our bi-monthly meetings.
At 3Cs meetings, three budding entrepreneurs are given the chance to make presentations to the audience. This is a vital service to the presenters and their business ideas. It allows them to test-run the "pitches" that they will make to potential investors and partners and it acts as an invitation to those in the audience who can help, to step forward and offer that help.
