Entrepreneur Lawrence Bonda Speaks at DECSA

Last week, the always well-dressed Edmonton entrepreneur Lawrence Bonda spoke to our Ventures class of entrepreneurs with disabilities.

Lawrence has faced many hardships, and he has received support from Ventures. He volunteered with a real estate network for several years, then branched into marketing and web services, and he continues to branch out.

He shared many nuggets of wisdom from his time at DECSA and beyond.

Lawrence suggests that entrepreneurs master the art of negotiation and in-kind exchanges, as well as access community and online resources. For example, Lawrence has used audiovisual resources at the Edmonton Public Library, found equipment at thrift stores, and met potential partners on Kijiji. As he says:

It’s not always about the money, it’s about figuring out what people want.

Our thanks to Lawrence for sharing!
