Creator of “Baked Lays” Potato Chips Offering Free Seminar for Small Business Owners/Entrepreneurs, Presented by RCEF & BizPitch

Mankato, Minn. – The Regional Center for Entrepreneurial Facilitation (RCEF) and BizPitch are pleased to present a free, interactive seminar by Dr. Jeffrey Stamp geared towards the process entrepreneurs must go through to bring their ideas to the marketplace.

Dr. Stamp will cover key areas to help in that process, including developing a great business concept, the customer value proposition, and establishing a true understanding of the particular business/transaction model. He will also teach attendees how to pull this together into a pitch-able concept.

The seminar will take place on Saturday, April 2 from 9:30am -12:30pm at Rasmussen College in Mankato (check-in at 9:15am). Space is limited to the first 45 people. Register at rcef.net/events. To get the most out of the seminar, attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop and a draft of an executive summary of their business (or business idea).

While the seminar is free, a free-will donation will be collected at the door for the Madelia businesses recently affected by fire.
