OpenforBIZ_SC_WEBsmlOPEN FOR BUSINESS CURRENTLY ON HOLD FOR THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE

On September 26, entrepreneurs flocked to displays staffed by representatives from county, state and federal organizations committed to helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses.  First in a series of free monthly business development fairs, the event was a one-stop shop offering information on funding, business consulting and training.  Attendees included both startups and established businesses seeking to expand and represented a broad spectrum of sectors—manufacturing, construction and services. Want to learn how to write a business plan that captures the imagination of financial institutions?  Need help researching your market?  This was the place to be!
