From June 13th to 15th, the Stevie Awards are presenting America Means Business, an entrepreneurial event taking place at the Metropolitan Pavilion and other locations around the city. The event will feature panel discussions, “How I Did It” case studies from industry professionals, demonstrations of products, and much more.
Although this three-day event is focused on empowering people to create small businesses and to become entrepreneurs, it also provides programs for current small business owners. The 1-on-1 Counseling Lounge, provided by SCORE, allows small business owners, as well as anyone who might want to start their own business, to receive immediate feedback on new business ideas as well as a specific analysis of the current state of their business.
These sessions are led by a SCORE mentor who is an experienced small business counselor. SCORE is a non-profit organization that uses veteran small business professionals to provide guidance to hundreds of other small business owners to help them succeed.
The three featured speakers leading the “How I Did It” seminars include Guillermo Molina, founder of Guillermo Couture, a company which designs custom couture pieces. Matthew David Hopkins, president and founder of 360 Design Events, an event design company, will also deliver a speech along with Jessica Rovello, founder of Arkadium, an NYC-based game development studio.
