    Our Mission

    To connect & educate entrepreneurs and micro enterprises to support their pathway to success.

    We will accomplish this through three initiatives:

    1. Development of a resources page to assist micro businesses in finding the help they need to thrive.
    2. Development and maintenance of a member-driven blog, where the focus is on providing high-value content that area businesses can use to learn and grow.
    3. Development and launch of an annual event focused on the needs of small business owners in varying stages of the business development cycle.
