As part of its mission to promote and advance the growth of the Hispanic business community in Central Texas, the MexNet Alliance will be offering a series of business seminars for entrepreneurs. The 2011 series kicks off with homegrown international speaker and author Keith Cunningham in the Kodolsky Lounge at the Long Center for the Performing Arts from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on March 3. Tickets are only $25 and the event is free for students and members of the Young Hispanic Professional Association and the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
In “Beating the Odds: Avoiding Fatal Business Mistakes”, Cunningham will discuss the major mistakes that most business make and how to avoid them, as well as the most critical business skills required so that you and your company can beat the odds and join the 4% club. (Only 4% of all start-ups reach their 10-year anniversary).
MexNet, a relative newcomer to Austin, will also be launching its membership program at the event. In it’s first year, MexNet Alliance partnered with General Consul of Mexico, Rosalba Ojeda, to help bring the first U.S. Chapter of “Empresarios por México” to the city of Austin. MexNet also hosted a very successful “Sabores Authenticos de México” event on the Long Center stage with special guest Diana Kennedy, writer and culinary guru in Mexican cuisine.
