A “Local” business model is one that requires the attention and focus from geographically specific businesses (restaurants, retail storefronts, home improvement contractors, events, dating, business networking) and/or the consumers interacting directly with these businesses.

Operating a startup with a “Local Business Model” raises a unique set of challenges including:
– Identifying businesses and consumers in your target geography
– Reaching these prospects through targeted marketing campaigns and the different types media they consume
– Developing a “critical mass” of users in multiple and distinct regions simultaneously

Come to the Ultra Light Startups Entrepreneur’s Forum next Thursday, August 6th and find out how to master these challenges.
