Chase for Business by JPMorgan Chase is hosting a business 201 workshop on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, between 11 am-12 pm in Downtown Riverside at the County’s Office of Economic Development. This in-person workshop will be focused on building foundations that last.

Building Foundations That Last

The “Building Foundations That Last” workshop will cover three main topics. Topics will include:

  • Thinking Like an Entrepreneur
  • Establishing a Foundation for Your Business
  • Developing Agility & Resilience

Thinking Like an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs are known for their innovative thinking and ability to solve problems. They are the risk-takers of the world who take chances on ideas and products that others may not.

The workshop will help you see things from a different perspective to think like an entrepreneur. You have to be able to look at a problem or situation and find a new way of doing things.

Entrepreneurs are constantly looking for ways to improve their business, whether it’s improving their customer service or increasing their sales. They work hard and don’t mind taking risks to reach their goals.

Every entrepreneur needs to know basic business principles, such as cash flow management and revenue stream planning, but these concepts aren’t enough for success. To be successful as an entrepreneur, you need more than just knowledge; you need creativity and innovation.

JPMorgan Chase invests in startups and startup events. One such startup that benefited from a conference held by JPMorgan Chase in San Francisco is SimpleSeq. The startup was incubated at the Murrieta Innovation Center.

Located at MIC, SimplSeq improves genomic sequencing by simplifying the sample preparation process. Basically, the BioTech startup simplifies and automates the genomic sequencing workflow process. SimplSeq raised its seed round in March this year when it announced obtaining $500K from an investor whom the company leadership met at the JP Morgan Conference.

Establishing a Foundation for Your Business

You’ve probably heard the old saying, “Work smarter, not harder.” When it comes to entrepreneurship, that’s especially true.

Starting a business is no cakewalk. Entrepreneurship takes a lot of hard work and dedication, but there are things you can do to make the process easier on yourself. 

When you’re starting, it’s essential to have a strong foundation for your business. This includes developing a solid business plan and knowing where your company is headed in the future. This will help you stay focused and on track with your goals, but it will also help ensure that you’re taking steps toward success every day.

Developing Agility and Resilience

As an entrepreneur, you have to be resilient. You have to be able to bounce back from setbacks and keep your eye on the prize.

But being resilient is about more than just being able to get back up after a fall. It’s about being agile β€” it means being flexible and adaptable in the face of change.

Riverside County Moving Towards Excellence

Last week we covered the news of Riverside County being awarded an Excellence Award from the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). The award was given for the City of Riverside’s PACT project with the 2022 Sustainability Award. The City of Riverside PACT is a four-part strategy to create a safer, healthier, and more sustainable transportation network.

About the PACT Project

PACT will provide plans that will help the City to create robust and accessible transportation options for residents and visitors well into the future. These plans include creating funding strategies and opportunities to provide more transportation options such as walking, bicycling, and taking public transit from one place to another. The City of Riverside’s vision is to gain insight from the community in order to build a safer, healthier, and more sustainable transportation network. PACT is an opportunity to continue to examine neighborhood roadways and set up a vision for years to come.
