IDEA Center Workshop – Keeping Tabs on your Critical Mass

The Rowan IDEA Center Foundation will hold its next workshop “Keeping Tabs on your Critical Mass:  Accounting, Insurance and Why You Need It” on Tuesday December 10, from 6:30-8 p.m. at City Tavern, 113 E. Fisher St. 

The Entrepreneurial Workshop Series continues with a two-part program to establish a good starting point for your business. Accounting, Insurance… do I have to?  Not your typical class about the balance sheet, but an opportunity to understand the impact of these business elements, why you need them and how they can help keep your business whole.  Elaine Spalding of the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce hosts the panel:

Greg Edds, represents State Farm Insurance a national group of insurance and financial services companies throughout the United States headquartered in Bloomington, Illinois. Greg has achieved multiple awards in the insurance industry.  He is also the current Chairman for the Rowan County Board of Commissioners.

Jeremy Jacobs of GreerWalker CPAs and Advisors, a regional CPA and Advisory firm headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina that provides tax, assurance, accounting, and business advisory services. It is among the top 200 largest CPA firms in the United States.  Jeremy is based in China Grove.

Semone Brisson is an accounting coach and educator for Small Business Centers within the N.C. Community college system.   She also provides accounting services for QuickBooks setup, implementation, and training for small to mid-size businesses and non-profits.

The IDEA Center Foundation holds monthly sessions on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8 p.m. at City Tavern. Its next session, scheduled for January will be “Your IT:  Infotech for Startups.” 

The goal of the IDEA Center Foundation is to create a structured, organized process to build and to recruit budding entrepreneurs, startups and existing business owners for Rowan County’s long-term economic growth and development.  To further that effort, the foundation is helping create and grow young businesses through partnerships among government, academia and private sector leaders in Rowan County.
