Accelerating the Small Business Community

Connecting. Educating. Small Business.

The Small Business Owners Committee will connect Small Business Owners to programs and resources – as well as give an outlet to speak openly about the unique challenges these business owners. 

This committee will bring people together to continue valuable conversations that are specific to and benefit small businesses.

“Producing inspiring events, identifying new ways of networking, and expanding business connections for Members, as well as igniting creativity is what we want to bring to small businesses.”
