Entrepreneur Fair coming to Cherry Hill Library on July 30

The Cherry Hill Public Library will host an Entrepreneur Fair on Wednesday, July 30 from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Individuals with business ambitions and existing business owners are encouraged to attend. Attendees will learn how to take the first step in starting a business as well as how to maximize current business potential.

“The library serves the entire Cherry Hill community and that includes local businesses,” says Andy Woodworth, the library’s reference and adult services supervisor. “The Entrepreneur Fair is for anyone who has a dream of starting up their own business and we are helping by connecting them with the people and organizations that can assist them along the way.”

Exhibitors from the area will be on hand to answer questions, provide support and showcase their services and expertise. Local exhibitors include: the New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners, Rutgers Small Business Development Center, Camden County Chamber of Commerce and the Latin America Entrepreneur Development Association.

In addition, keynote speaker Alex Freund, president of Landing Expert Career Coaching, will present “How to Staff Your First Employees” at 6:30 p.m. His presentation, specifically geared toward entrepreneurs, will explain the importance of hiring well and emphasize the cost of making hiring mistakes. Attendees will gain insight on how to attract people to small entrepreneurial companies and learn what questions to ask potential employees in an interview.

This event is funded by a grant awarded by Library Link New Jersey and the Technology and Entrepreneurship Talent Network. The fair is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.chplnj.org.
