Feedback Welcome: A Public Event For Entrepreneurs and Community

Feedback Welcome 12_10_18.png

Ciara Monroe

Tell us about your business idea:
Ciara is working on building a business that connects beauty connoisseurs with a network of black-owned vendors, beauticians, and cosmetologists for hire, offer master classes, and product demonstrations. People will be able to find the nearest available trusted makeup artist and browse thousands of handmade or manufactured beauty and personal care products owned by folks of Africana descent. This marketplace will allow you to show off your looks and connect with other beauty connoisseurs like you and order products that will be delivered to your door! We'll also be hosting social and networking events and have the ability to book a space for your appointments.

What feedback are you looking for?
Ciara is looking for feedback on her business model.

Who would you love to see in the room?
Beauty connoisseurs, make-up artist, stylists, and vendors that sell products of the Africana decent

As always this is a free community event!

What is Feedback Welcome?

What do you do when you have a great idea but aren’t sure if it’s really a business?  What about if you have a business that’s up and running but you’re hitting roadblocks you just don’t have the connections or answers for?

Well, Feedback Welcome is probably the event just for you! Our community loves a startup and a good brainstorming session. This is the perfect opportunity for you to come, share your idea, and leave with the answers and connections you need to keep going. 

So, what does this look like?

  • You’ll give a short presentation on your great idea or business focused on the answers you’re looking for and/or the connections you need

  • Our community will listen and offer you feedback, answers, and networking connections to get you moving

  • To keep you going you’ll get a 1-hour, one-on-one follow up session at a later date to keep you accountable and guide you to your next action step

Sound good? We thought so. Apply to present here!
