Do you think your small business could run more efficiently? Maybe you haven’t found the right technology tools yet to streamline your business processes. Local technology events geared toward small businesses are a great resource for small business owners, providing education, training and networking with technology experts in one location. And many of these events, including SCORE workshops, are free!
A prime example of a free SCORE event, thanks to its partners, is the e-Business Now “How to Use Technology to Grow Your Small Business” event on Tuesday, September 27. Sponsored by Cisco, SCORE, the SBA and many other major public and private entities, small business owners will be offered free tech workshops, free buzz sessions with tech experts and networking opportunities, along with the opportunity to hear Gail Goodman, CEO of Constant Contact give a key note speech.
As a small business owner, we know your time is precious. By attending a one-day tech event designed for small businesses, you have access to all of the latest technology tools, educational updates and technology experts under one roof. You can learn about the industry’s latest trends for small businesses like yours, visit vendor booths to discuss your business’ specific needs, try some of the latest tools and network with other small business owners, all in one day. By the time you leave, you may have pinned down your business’ exact tech needs, found a local distributor, received a special offer and made important business contacts – all in one place.
