Growing a business requires more than investment and personnel; these two essentials also require the multidimensional leadership to guide, learn, apply, study and advance the mission.  With “Catapult: Four Essentials To Propel Your Business” program, The ELEVATE Direct Impact Dollars (DID) planning team returns to the Black Dot Underground building in a continued effort to guide successful community entrepreneurship.  The community is invited to learn and participate in a lively interactive discussion on the ‘crucial and non-negotiable’ elements that will help your business to grow and sustain success.
The DID planning team’s presentation follows the community empowerment phase (Round 1) of the 2018 ‘Elevate Direct Impact Dollars Initiative’, which was an effort to leverage finance based on the community pooling dollars as an alternative to requesting and begging for money from corporate and institutional sources.  This strategy is to use community funding, pool it together as a source of money that will empower and expand the capacity of African-American businesses to empower the community itself. This effort yielded results of more than $17,000 dollars, generated by requests of $350 from the community, of which 50 contributors committed to the plan.

Following the successful generation of a funding pool in 2018, The ELEVATE “Grow Your Business” initiative now advances forward with a goal of 75 to 100 contributors by the end of May 2019 – ever-expanding the amount of funding for the future of the pool.

The DID team, composed of four business professionals, returns to facilitate a lively discussion around the subject matter of how to create synergy around visioning, business planning, effective marketing and time management – key intangibles that must be accounted for in the operation of any successful business.  The presentation and panel will include plenty of time for interaction and a Q & A session.

The ELEVATE Direct Impact Dollars Team’s “Catapult: Four Essentials To Propel Your Business” program takes place on Tuesday April 2, 2019 from 6-8pm, at The Black Dot Underground (1437 S. Jackson St., Seattle, Washington 98144)
