Entrepreneurs and freelancing creatives: What questions do you have about funding your hustle? About accessing capital for your small, new, creative and/or minority-owned business?

Poverty-focused reporting collaborative Broke in Philly, of which Technical.ly is a member, is taking over Venture Cafe within the CIC coworking space in University City next month. The five-hour, drop-in-when-you-can event includes sessions on funding and business plan basics, crowdfunding, work-life balance and design thinking, as well as lightning talks and a “generosity marketplace” where attendees can trade services with each other (think: free social media training for free conference space).

Partners include The Enterprise Center, University City Science Center, the Sustainable Business Network, the West Philadelphia Promise Zone and Broke parent org Resolve Philadelphia. The event will offer a special focus on West Philadelphia businesses, though entrepreneurs from all over the city are encouraged to attend — especially because concurrent to the sessions, you can take advantage of perks such as free headshots, a pop-up newsroom and office hours to learn skills like QuickBooks.

  • What — “Funding the Hustle: Accessing capital for your small, new, creative, and/or minority-owned business”
  • When — Thursday, July 18, 3 to 8 p.m.
  • Where — Venture Cafe Philadelphia (3675 Market St.)
  • How much — Free, with food and drinks provided!
