What’s missing from the Mount Prospect business community? You!

The Village of Mount Prospect is teaming up with the Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce, the IL Small Business Development Center, Mount Prospect Downtown Merchants Association and the Mount Prospect Public Library to help new businesses get established by providing a package of innovative economic development resources. The Entrepreneur's Café is a free presentation and open discussion designed to guide new and prospective businesses down the path of success.

Our most recent Entrepreneur's Café was held June 3, 2014 at Bar Louie, 200 E. Rand Road. Special thanks to DJ Harrington, General Manager of Bar Louie, for the hospitality and first-hand knowledge that was shared with the group. Thanks to all that participated in this round of the Entrepreneur's Café.
