Entrepreneur Registry: A NemoNews Project

Do you have your own business?    Do you want to start your own business?  Do you have a disability?  Are you in the Chicago area?  If so, TheNemoNews wants to hear from you.   Please register with us using the form below.  We promise not to sell your information, bug the heck out of you, or give away your trade secrets!

TheNemoNews is creating this registry for a couple of reasons:

First, we would like to talk to area entrepreneurs who have disabilities.   We might write up and publish some of the stories.  (With your permission.)  Your story might inspire others.

Second, we would like to invite you to events that are of particular interest to entrepreneurs.  There is growing interest in entrepreneurship among individuals with disabilities.  This includes developing resources to help them succeed.

Third, we would like to have some idea of how large this group is and the scope of activity.  That way we can better identify our strengths, figure out what is needed and make entrepreneurial success easier.

For more information on the registry, email Mary Curran Rhodes, mary@thenemonews.com

April 12, 2014:  The registry is now  closed.
