Business Startup 101 – How to Monetize Your Passion

Hello friends! Due to the COVID-19, we have decided to move some of our events online. We understand that the spread of this virus has brought more uncertainty to our livelihoods, and has led to temporary or permanent loss of employment for many. So what can we do to adapt to our current climate?

At Diversify, one of our core mandates is to provide resources for people to start their own businesses. In making lemonades out of lemons, we are starting this with a series on “How to Start Up and Monetize Your Own Business”.

We are starting our first session with the indomitable Raja Skogland. This is a FREE event and starts at 2pm. To register, click here.
