Dozens of new business owners set up shop outside the Whole Foods store in Charlottesville Saturday for an entrepreneurship workshop.
Community Investment Collaborative - a Charlottesville non-profit - hosted the event.
The organization's program director says entrepreneurship is on the rise in Charlottesville. She says, for many, it's a great way to guarantee a paycheck.
"The economy is not the greatest right now and it's very hard for people to find jobs at all levels, this is a great way for people to start a business where they can support themselves but they can also provide jobs for others in the community," April Rastau of the Community Investment Collaborative said.
The non-profit is accepting students for its fall courses. The program director says she's always looking for the next fresh idea.
