Berkshire Small Business Resource Expo
August 9 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Open to All Business Owners and Managers!
Tuesday, August 9, 8 am to 1 pm
Entrepreneurship for All Berkshire County is coordinating a half-day Business Resource Expo on Tuesday, August 9 at the Stationery Factory in Dalton. A collaborative effort of EforAll, 1Berkshire, Pittsfield Economic Revitalization Corporation, and Berkshire Regional Planning Commission, this event will feature booths from more than 25 organizations that support small business, panel discussions, and plenty of opportunities for networking.
Business owners and managers will be able to connect with organizations and programs that have resources to help them – whether with technical assistance, funding or grant programs, marketing, or other advice or support. The program will be valuable for existing businesses, would-be entrepreneurs, and solo service providers and consultants.
Participants will be able to access experts through a series of panel discussions led by regional experts:
● “Which organization can help me with what?” moderated by Ben Lamb of 1Berkshire
● “How can I get funding for my business?” moderated by Raymond Lanza-Weil of Common Capital
● “How can I find more customers, what marketing works?” moderated by Noah Cook-Dubin of Kanoa Consulting
This free, public event is made possible by a grant from PERC and additional support from the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission. Berkshire Eagle is the media sponsor. MountainOne is the sponsor of a complimentary breakfast for all attendees and TD Bank is the sponsor of lunch.
A networking area will be open throughout the event for one-on-one conversations and meetings. Admission is free of charge but pre-registration is required at http://bcbizexpo.com
