Free Conference Offers Free Resources to Help Houstonians Start and Grow Businesses
Small businesses employ the bulk of America’s private sector workforce. The number of new small businesses has exploded over the past decade but many fail because owners do not have access to the vital tools they need to succeed.
The conference will be held at 3100 Cleburne, Houston, Texas 77004, at the Thurgood Marshall School Of Law on the Campus of Texas Southern University from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Business owners will get crucial information from experts on developing a successful business plan; identifying and securing sources of capital; effective marketing and taking advantage of free resources that will build and sustain their businesses.
There will also be a "shark tank" like business plan competition for businesses and entrepreneurs who previously entered that contest. Six winners will be awarded monetary prizes totaling $19,000.
