The King Arts Complex and Huntington National Bank are hosting Entrepreneur Empowerment, an event designed to inspire entrepreneurs, small businesses, and young professionals to develop new concepts and strategies for the 21st century, on Aug. 31 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
The event also is meant to encourage King Arts members and stakeholders to continue their annual support.
Farrah Gray, a 26-year-old entrepreneur, philanthropist, syndicated columnist and best-selling author, is the event’s guest speaker. At age six, Gray began selling homemade body lotion and hand painted rocks (to be used as bookends) door-to door, according to King Arts officials. When he was eight-years-old, Gray became co-founder of Urban Neighborhood Enterprise Economic Club on the south side of Chicago. (U.N.E.E.C was the forerunner to New Early Entrepreneur Wonders, an organization he opened on Wall Street.)
Gray claims he became a self-made millionaire by age 14, is the youngest person to have an office on Wall Street, and is the youngest to receive an honorary doctorate. Gray’s books, “Realionaire,” “Get Real, Get Rich,” and “The Truth Shall Make You Rich,” have been translated into the Russian, Korean, Indonesian, and Vietnamese languages; his books have been sold in Africa, Australia, Europe, and Central and South America.
Entrepreneur Empowerment has limited seating, so those planning to attend must RSVP to [email protected] by Aug. 27. The event will feature a cash bar and refreshments provided by Berwick Catering.
The King Arts Complex is located at 867 Mt. Vernon Ave. in Columbus’s King Lincoln District.
