Your customers are turning to the Internet to find solutions to their problems. Can your business be found online?
Steer clear of web design firms wanting to charge you thousands of dollars for a simple website for a business that isn’t fully developed. Seriously, your first website really shouldn’t cost that much.
C.A.K.E. stands for Consulting And Knowledge Exchange (clever, huh?).
In our first year (2012) we held weekly workshops with a focus on sharing useful business tips that you can implement immediately.In 2013 we featured 13 Portland area businesses in the form of a case study (we like to call them CAKE Studies).
Join us at 6pm on the last Wednesday of every month at the East Bank Saloon and Restaurant where we will offer up solutions to your most pressing business problems. These aren't events where the main goal is networking. Sure, you'll meet people, but you will walk away with information!
You've read the free resources, you might even be eating on some delicious cake, but you're still left wondering where to start? We're available for private one-on-one consulting to help you get started with your business.
What's that? You already have a business and still need advice?
Since the first CAKE workshop that I attended, I've gone back as often as my schedule allows. The hosts offer great, yet somewhat unconventional advice on how to start up a business with a more 'boot-strapped' approach.
Startups require verve, dedication, and a healthy bit of knowledge to succeed -- for this last, story-sharing among founders is a great way to learn what you need to know, and CAKE offers it, along with a healthy slice of calories. As a legal professional, I appreciate how CAKE covers the pan but still explores the cutting edge.
