Are you an entrepreneur or an aspiring entrepreneur? Save the date and join the African American Entrepreneurs Club as they open up a chapter in Fleming Island, FL.  This will be another super informative workshop with our founder Leslie Giscombe. His passion for supporting one of the fastest growing entrepreneurial demographic segment; African Americans, is what fuels his desire to educate our community. 
Leslie will use his experience in both corporate America as well as his over 30 years as a serial entrepreneur to teaching on one of the most important aspects of running a successful business.

Although Leslie had been a successful entrepreneur for many years, he decided to return to school to sharpen his entrepreneurial skills earning him the recognition as the oldest African American to ever graduate from the undergraduate College of Business at the University of Florida. He didn't stop there. He went on to earn a BSBA in Marketing with a minor in Entrepreneurship and an MBA in International Business from Florida Institute of Technology. 

Don't miss this priceless opportunity to ask questions and learn how you too can build a successful business.  For more information about AAEC events and membership, visitaaeclub.com
