IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship- Events


The IJ Clinic is a hub for entrepreneurs. We provide resources online, on-site, and all over town. We regularly present workshops that provide valuable information and connections for local entrepreneurs, and our website identifies resources and events all over the city. We are always happy to speak with community groups, church groups, chambers of commerce, and others about the importance of entrepreneurship and the role that the law plays (good and bad) in the start-up of a new business.
