The Mitchell Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting an Entrepreneur Resource Fair on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 at the DWU Sherman Center. The fair will begin at 11 a.m. and go until 2 p.m.
The goal of this fair is to provide entrepreneurs and small business owners with 1) training opportunities, 2) access to resource providers, and 3) connections to people who impact entrepreneur development locally.
The fair will feature:
- resources from local government, financing agencies, technical assistance providers, colleges, accountants, lawyers, and local business owners.
- graduates from the CO.STARTERS Business Accelerator Program.
- mini-seminars and speaker sessions from successful local entrepreneurs.
- networking and mentorship opportunities.
This event is free and open to the public. There will be light refreshments and snacks available, along with door prize giveaways.
We encourage anyone interested to attend. Whether you are already a small business owner looking to further your business ventures or an aspiring entrepreneur still developing your business idea - this event is for you! This is also a great educational opportunity for career, technical education, and business classes to attend.
