Barrie is trying to give local entrepreneurs a leg up by giving them a taste of what to expect. Invest Barrie is offering their second panel discussion called Raizit, giving those ready to take the plunge and be their own boss a chance to hear stories and lessons from those who have already been through it and found success. The second Raizit event goes January 26th at the Flying Monkey Brewery and involves a four-person panel of local business leaders. The first Raizit event was held in November, and attended by more than 60 entrepreneurs and wannabes. Both events were sold out, but a third Raizit event is already in the works.
