GREEN BAY – Entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to connect and expand their client base at ColorBold’s Pop-Up show on Sunday.
The show aims to meet the association’s mission of supporting entrepreneurs’ network growth, give them exposure and bring them closer to resources which can support their businesses.
During morning hours, entrepreneurs and business owners will have a chance to meet each other and present themselves to different organizations. From noon to 4 pm, stands will be open to sell products or offer services to shoppers.
This event, which will be held at the KI Convention Center, 333 Main St., Green Bay, allows for up to 50 vendors to show products or talk about their businesses with a stand of their own.
Kimyatta Ratliff, president of ColorBold, said business owners and organizations will have until 11 am Wednesday to register at colorbold.org and pay a vendor fee that includes setup materials.
“We are open to everyone. So, if the entrepreneur is Caucasian, they can definitely take part in our event and programs,” she said.
Everyone at the event will get tickets to vote for their favorite small business, and the winning vendor will be awarded $ 500.
Shoppers will also be able to take part in several drawings throughout the day where they can win free products or services.
“I would like the community to come to this event, that way they’ll know who’s out there and they can support them on a regular basis,” Ratliff said.
