America’s Small Business Development Center 2020 Virtual ConferenceJill Quash
The year 2020 has shaken the entire world, including the small business world. Some businesses have closed doors forever, while many others have pivoted and adopted resilience. Not being alone as an entrepreneur has been one way to rise up and power punch any challenge. Nothing beats a phone call or a sitdown with like-minded entrepreneurs. More than ever, we need a strong network. Thankfully, we can find this network and more at America’s Small Business Development Center virtual conference on September 29-30.
America’s SBDC Network is the national association that represents SBDCs throughout the country. It is one of many incredible small business organizations that entrepreneurs should join. In fact, your local SBDC provides no-cost business consulting and low-cost business training. What’s extra special about this year for the national network is that it celebrates 40 years of amazing work by the SBDCs.[Tweet “If you’re a #smallbusiness owner, 1) join your local SBDC and 2) attend the @ASBDC virtual conference Sep 29-30. “]
At the virtual conference, live events will take place from 1-4pm EST. Over 100 on-demand, high-quality professional development workshops will be accessible online. These workshops are available from September 29, 2020 through March 31, 2021.
