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 Economic Development Corporation and 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.
