Small businesses form the heart of our communities, offer local employment, and contribute to well-being. They must thrive and grow to close the wealth gap that exists in our country. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the Indiana Small Business Development Center to create a webinar series specifically for minority business owners. Topics will include starting a business, business operations, financial health, marketing, developing banking relationships, and succeeding in the post-COVID-19 world. We will feature minority business owners who will share their experiences and suggestions for success through panel discussions and Q&A sessions. Whether your business is up and running or you are just ready to get started, this series will help you achieve your goals.
