To celebrate the 8th Annual American Express® Small Business Saturday™, Macon County business owners, aspiring student entrepreneurs from Tuskegee University and other local universities in conjunction with the Tuskegee Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) presents its 2nd Annual Small Business Saturday™ Welcome Center with a Breakfast Seminar & Exhibition Event on Saturday, November 18, 2017.

The AMEX Small Business Saturday™ is usually held the Saturday after the Thanksgiving holiday, but we wanted to assure that we included the phenomenal work of our aspiring student entrepreneurs. We also decided to add a bit more excitement by including a breakfast seminar and a few competitive opportunities for our participants and the attendees! An exciting addition to the student involvement is the Shark Tank® Business Pitch Competition sponsored by the Tuskegee University ENACTUS Organization, which allows the students to win a monetary prize for business concepts based upon the United Nations Sustainable Goals. Attendees will receive a welcome bag with goodies and information, as well as be eligible to win prizes sponsored by local area businesses.

The Small Business Welcome Center will be FREE and open to the public and businesses. However, due to limited space, general/student business owners MUST pre-register online at www.tusmacsbs.eventbrite.com no later than November 11, 2017 to be included in the event or to attend the breakfast seminar. For more information regarding the Small Business Saturday™ Welcome Center, please contact Stephanie Simon, Co-Organizer at 334-226-0750 or Karin Hopkins, TACC Executive Director at 334-727-6619.

REMINDER: Businesses must register for the Exhibit and the Breakfast Seminar separately! Your exhibit registration does not mean you are automatically listed as a seminar attendee.
