Today was actually easy, it was all the time and effort people put in that got us to today. I joined the process about a year or so ago. I got involved through the Creative Industries Cluster. I got more involved during the writing of the social enterprise cafe business plan and the difficulty in securing the right to operate such a venture at Woodward’s. My employer was involved even earlier giving Irwin and Co one of their first grants, to hire a consultant to write the initial W2 business plan. Building Opportunities with Business will continue to be involved as we will help them hire and train local residents to work at the cafe. I’ll continue to be involved as I’m on the business advisory committee or whatever it is called.
