NJEDA to Host Virtual Small Business Resource Workshop
The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) will host a South Jersey virtual small business resource workshop on Tuesday, September 14th, 2021, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m to present information on available resources to support the growth of the state’s small businesses.
The hour-long workshop will offer small businesses, startups, and nonprofits an opportunity to connect with government representatives, small business advocates, and financial lenders and advisors who will offer their expertise on areas of interest that include: financial resources; how to properly register a business in New Jersey; how to certify a business as women-, minority-, or veteran-owned; and ways to access free available technical assistance, federal resources, and mentorship opportunities, among other relevant topics.
In addition to NJEDA staff, panelists will include representatives from the US Small Business Administration (SBA), the New Jersey Small Business Development Center (SBDC), SCORE, the New Jersey Business Action Center (BAC), the New Jersey Department of Treasury, the New Jersey Division of Taxation, and local Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs).
Workshop participants will give a two-minute introduction and then enter a breakout session to further discuss their organization and what they offer. There will be three breakout sessions: one for the SBA, SBDCs, SCORE; one for the BAC, Treasury and Taxation; and one for the CDFIs. Local service providers and lender representatives will present information about their technical assistance services and resources.
