Are you a well-established business looking to the future, or just recently opened your doors -- learning about financing opportunities and key resources, and making connections with other regional businesses will give small business owners practical tools and a “support team.” 

It takes time to stay up on the latest tax issues, state incentive programs, lending opportunities, and business planning support. Come by June 21, and take away information that will help your business, whether you’re long-established or just getting going! 

There will be plenty of time following the presentations for one-on-one conversations and networking. There is no cost to attend. Please RSVP by emailing Mary Ellen Barnes at [email protected] or calling 882-5984.
