Urban League to Roll Out Entrepreneur Clinic

June 25, 2013

The Winston-Salem Urban League will debut its small business and entrepreneurial clinic Wednesday at its Quality of Life Center, 3441 Patterson Ave. The event will be held from 12:30-2 p.m.

The clinic is aimed at providing entrepreneurs with the skills and resources necessary to start their own business or expand an existing one. The city of Winston-Salem and Wake Forest University's Community Law and Business Clinic are participating in the initiative.

Steve Vigil, founding director of the Wake Forest clinic, will coordinate the legal training seminars. Among the topics will be entity selection and business models; governance, management and employment; financial statements and models; and regulatory, license and tax compliance.

The city's assistance will be provided by Walter Farabee, minority and women-owned business enterprise program coordinator, and Reuben Gonzalez, business development administrator. Their seminars will cover starting a business; business-plan development; financial management; and market analysis and advertising.

For more information or to enroll in the program, call Steve Jones at (336) 245-2710 and Patricia Sadler at (336) 725-5614.
