The City of Raleigh will host the 2nd Annual Raleigh Small Business Connect, on May 7, 2019, in partnership with Carolina Small Business Development Fund, Women’s Business Center of NC, Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce and Wake Technical Community College. Registration is free and open until May 5. 

The event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at NC State University’s McKimmon Center, 1101 Gorman Street, Raleigh. The theme for this year’s event is “Innovation to Fuel Small Business.”  The event will unite start-ups, entrepreneurs and small business owners with resource providers. 

Haley Lynn Gray, from Fear Less Marketing, will lead a session on developing a social media strategy for a business. Local business funding resources will lead a session on creative ways to fund a business. Lunch will be provided. A panel discussion will allow attendees to hear from local business owners in the community including Emily Sexton of The Flourish Market, Rachael Boone of BeEvolved HR, Jon Hayes of RewardStock, Brian Burnett of Glenwood South Tailor and Danilo Ordonez of D&L Plumbing.

Last year’s event was a huge success. Approximately 300 people attended and 30 business resource providers shared how individuals can start, grow and diversify their business. “The City of Raleigh is excited to be a part of the second Raleigh Small Business Connect event in celebration of National Small Business Week,” said Tiffany McNeill, manager of business retention and expansion with the City of Raleigh. We are fortunate to work with a group of dynamic community leaders dedicated to supporting the small business community. This year’s theme is “Innovation to Fuel Small Business” and we hope that this will be an event that will provide the platform start-ups, entrepreneurs and small business owners need to fuel their businesses growth, information on starting/growing your business, marketing, access to capital and networking opportunities.
