CAN I JOIN IF I AM CURRENTLY UNEMPLOYED OR JUST THINKING ABOUT BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
Everyone has been between jobs at one time or another and also in the stage of thinking about starting their own business. As long as you are either looking for a new job or considering starting your own business, you are welcome to apply for a membership.
