Frisco Entrepreneur

Be Encouraged

Frisco Entrepreneur™ is a division of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce aimed at fostering and providing resources to Frisco’s entrepreneurs. Whether you are starting a business or looking to grow your business, we have resources for you!

Looking for a Place to Work, Meet, or Collaborate?

The latest development in the Frisco Entrepreneur™ program is providing a physical meeting place for entrepreneurs looking to connect, share stories, provide advice, and whatever else aspiring entrepreneurs need and want.  Every Monday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, the Chamber Event Room is open to anyone who wants to use it.  In addition, any other time during the week that there are no other events specifically scheduled in the Event Room, entrepreneurs are welcome to come and gather.  If the Event Room is being used for a specific function, entrepreneurs are welcome to use other parts of the building that are open and available. Need a space to meet…come to the Frisco Chamber and we will find you a seat!

Learn from Proven Entrepreneurs

Learn, Earn, and Return is a speakers’ series where proven entrepreneurs provide learning lessons to other entrepreneurs detailing lessons learned, struggles along the way, and tips on how to succeed as a local entrepreneur.

Free business counseling services offered at the Frisco Chamber of Commerce every Wednesday morning by appointment. Contact the Frisco Chamber of Commerce at (972) 335-9522 to schedule your SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) appointment. SCORE also offers webinars and workshops in the Dallas area. Visit the SCORE website for more information.

Connect with Investors

Invest Local is a program whereby the Frisco Chamber is working to connect entrepreneurs seeking financing with local, non-traditional sources of funding.  These connections are not just for the typical start-up software programmer, but they apply to any entrepreneur looking for funds from $300 to wrap a vehicle to financing of $1 million or more.

What is Next?

That is up to you…the Frisco entrepreneur.  While the Frisco Chamber is working to be the entrepreneurial epicenter of Frisco, it is not up to the Chamber to determine what is needed, what programming is desired, or what you want.  Our role is to listen to what the entrepreneurs in the area are wanting and what they are talking about.  From there, we can help direct them to the place/resource they need and/or work to create such a resource if not already being provided elsewhere in the local business community.
