Accelerating the Small Business Community

Connecting. Educating. Small Business.

The Small Business Owner’s Roundtable (SBO) brings people together to continue valuable conversations specific to small businesses via roundtable discussions and workshops that provide direct learning, networking, and peer-to-peer mentoring.

Roundtables serve as a place to assess ideas and learn from other business owners, SCORE volunteers, and NaperLaunch leaders who have extensive business management and business mentoring experience. Business owners enjoy these interactive discussions because of the peer learning experience designed to spark interactive communication. Participants take advantage of collaboration and networking opportunities as they gain significant insights on how to enhance productivity, strategic marketing, and overall business success through group discussion and coaching.

Members of the Small Business Owners Roundtable.

“Our members gain access to mentorship, training, and other valuable resources. Participants form trusted relationships, gain practical knowledge and assistance, and share lessons, tools, and promising practices.”
