Join us for the premiere of
The New Entrepreneur: Odyssey for a Dream
A documentary film about VilCap: Start - Clarkston
SE@G's entrepreneur accelerator program
The documentary examines the lives of several Clarkston, GA micro-entrepreneurs hoping to start their own businesses. Follow a few candidates through the VilCap: Start Program, a unique training series providing selected business owners with the knowledge, tools and network to develop their ventures. Key to the program is a low-cost loan fund that the entrepreneurs themselves allocate to several of their fellow participants at the end of the program.
You'll visit the homes of the aspiring Clarkston entrepreneurs, many of whom are refugees hoping to start a new life in America. As we look more closely at the painful past of a few participants and the hardships they have overcome, new meaning is brought to the VilCap: Start program. Our story ends with 2-3 participants receiving a loan of up to $10,000 with moments of joy, hope, confidence and excitement for the entrepreneurs’ future.
During this special premiere showing, you will have a unique opportunity to meet entrepreneurs from the 2013 program and hear from the filmmakers. Please plan to stay for conversations and light refreshments.
Please forward this invitation to anyone else you think might be interested.
