The City of Austin Small Business Program announces a series of educational events to help Austin’s small businesses. Attendees will receive free advice on subjects including: funding, marketing, legal, and business planning from fellow business owners and experts in their respective fields.
“Austin has a vibrant small business community,” says Rebecca Giello, Economic Development Department Interim Director. “A key goal of the City of Austin is to continue to support our small business sector with the tools and information needed to continue to grow our economy.”
Highlights of the weeklong program include Money Talks: Seed Funding Roundtables on April 30th at 2:00 p.m. and concludes with The Art of Social Media for Advanced Users on May 4th beginning at 10:30 a.m.
“There will be plenty of sessions where new or existing small business owners can learn different ways to do business and develop new skills,” adds Vicky Valdez, Small Business Program Division Manager.
These events celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit in Austin in conjunction with the national celebration which recognizes small business and entrepreneurs across the United States. The Small Business Program is proud to partner with the Austin Public Library to host five small business sessions at branches throughout the city.
Tickets to each event are free, but attendees should arrive early to ensure a spot as tickets do not guarantee admission. Registration and more details can be found at www.SmallBizAustin.org .
