2009 FREE Small Business Expo – We care about Chicago Small Business
The 2000 Chicago Small Business Expo is set for Friday, July 17th the UIC Forum at Halsted and Roosevelt.
Many people- even reporters have asked- why hold a small business expo in a serious recession? We think there has never been a more important year. THE SMALL BUSINESS EXPO has never been about opportune timing. We hold the Chicago Business Expo each year – BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT CHICAGO SMALL BUSINESS.
Chicago Small Business is the biggest job creation engine in our economy, making up 92% of all of the business licenses in the City.
They are the strength of the fabric that makes our city of so many diverse neighborhoods GREAT.
There is a cloud over our economy. Small business owners provide much of the silver lining. By a margin of 4-1 in all of our surveys – CHICAGO SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS ARE SEEING BUSINESS TRENDS SHOWING SIGNS OF TURNAROUND – AND REVENUES BEGINNING TO INCREASE. You will see by the headline below that record submissions were entered for our annual business plan competition.
Again, we hold the Chicago Business Expo each year at a break even budget – BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT CHICAGO SMALL BUSINESS.
TO SPONSOR – PURCHASE A VENDOR BOOTH – OR register to attend for A SNEAK PEAK of the all day free small business workshops – email: firstname.lastname@example.org
