Happy New Year!

2013 will be another unique year for business development and entrepreneurship. With the steady recovery of US and global economy, there are many exciting opportunities for growing your business or start a new company to ride the waves in many industrial sectors.

NACEA’s mission remains the same: it is a self-serving community for all current and potential entrepreneurs to gain insights, exchange ideas, find parnters and opportunities, seek funding, learn from experienced veteran entrepreneurs, or simply meet new friends in realizing their entrepreneurial dreams.

This year, we initiated this Business Roadmap Series, in order to help you “pressure-cook” your plans to grow your existing business or your entrepreneurial endeavors. In this first seminar of this series, we will bring to you topics in Financing your business using your own funding sources, How to draft a win-win Partnership Agreement, How to hire foreign employees, how to protect your technical IP, and immigration options for business owners, etc.. We are certain you will find these topics essential and helpful for your future business strategies.
