5th Annual Small Business Week Conference

Small Business Week is a national movement started by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to honor America’s entrepreneurs. The City of Columbia is committed to supporting its entrepreneurs and small businesses on a local level. Through the City of Columbia’s Small Business Week Conference, the Office of Business Opportunities highlights the impact of the city’s outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners. The conference promises to be a unique opportunity to network with small and large business owners throughout the midlands, city and county officials, and a great line-up of presenters with a wealth of information for every business owner, from the “aspiring” entrepreneur to the “mature” business owner that has proven that it can stand the tests of time (and money!).  We can’t wait to see you there!

Brewer, CFE is the Senior Director of Education and Diversity for the International Franchise Association.  In this role, she leads IFA’s efforts to increase the number of minorities and women in franchising as a part of new/ emerging markets. Brewer works hand-in-hand with members of Congress, Mayors and other stakeholders by coordinating and delivering educational programs and cultivating relationships in major cities across the U.S. She staffs the IFA Diversity Institute Board.  

 

 

Owning a franchise makes you a small business owner and helps create jobs in Columbia SC. Do you: (1) want to own a franchise, but think it is beyond your reach, (2) have a business and want to expand, (3) just don’t know who to talk to about franchising and business ownership. If you answered yes, to any of the questions, plan to attend the “Small Business Ownership and Franchising” two-hour session during the City of Columbia SC’s 5th Annual Small Business
