The Manhattan Beach Chamber is excited to announce our education session focused on programs and benefits available for your business, most of them for free. We are always on the lookout for ways to make doing business more efficient and affordable. After all without a bottom line it is hard to grow or keep a business open.
On June 9th we will be hosting an Education Session: Benefits and Services Available to Businesses, in which you will have the opportunity to here from leaders in the community. There will be discussion on subsidized employees, free training programs, career development programs, start-up funding, SBA loans, and many other tremendous programs.
Speakers will include Chris Cagle with the South Bay Workforce Investment Board, Mason Hawthorne of US Bank, and Star Van Buren from the Small Business Development Center. These professionals have tremendous knowledge of what it takes to succeed in business and are eager to provide you with the tools you need. While many people know of these organization, most do not take advantage of what is being offered by them.
The Small Business Development Center is able to provide free training, access to funding, and complimentary consultations to connect you with an abundance of free resources.
