Most think about trouble and restructuring when they think about TMA members. This past week, some of our members were able to put their skills to work in a benevolent way within the NYC community. That is, helping small businesses in our community to grow. As part of our joint efforts with the Empire State Development Corporation, the NYC TMA brings together our members with New York entrepreneurs looking for business guidance on how to start, or grow, a successful business. This speed dating event allows for networking, individual mentoring meetings and a panel discussion on financing of small businesses. The entrepreneurs are drawn from the NYC area small business community with significant representation from minority and women owned businesses. We provide this event is free to entrepreneurs; with the space donated by the Foley Lardner law firm and drinks and food donated by the NYC chapter of the Turnaround Management Association. This twice per year event benefits roughly 100 entrepreneurs annually.
We look forward to seeing even more mentors at our Pro Bono event in Spring 2020.
The deadline for the 2020 Turnaround & Transaction of The Year Awards has been extended until Friday, February 28!… https://t.co/0dps0GrxhT
