Learn how to identify and serve entrepreneurs!

Self-employment is a labor market trend as more and more jobseekers turn to entrepreneurship to create their own jobs and restart the economy. Early analysis of the Great Migration reveals an uptick in people starting their own businesses and creating their own jobs. Immigrants always have played and will play an important role in creating jobs as the economy enters its recovery phase. Also, they are more likely to start a new business than the rest of the population.

Join CAMEO (California Association for Micro Enterprise Opportunity), the country’s largest business service provider network for professionals who are serving entrepreneurs with other services, for a three-hour workshop to learn how to recognize entrepreneurship in your clients and connect them to the right services.
