Business Development Forum Offered

by Trenace C. Pyles
The Atlanta Small Business Training Consortium Inc. (ASBTCI), located in the Georgia Hill Community Building, is inviting people interested in small business projects and ideas to attend a two-day, out-of-town forum. The forum will be October 16 and 17 at Olive Harvey College in Chicago, Illinois.
The topic of this forum is An Exchange in Black Economic Empowerment, Small Business Emerging from America to Africa. Aspiring start-up and small business owners will have the opportunity to discuss small business development and expansion. The exchanges will include facilitation of activities that are informative and hands-on, which take into consideration what stages attendees are in regarding their business ideas, decision making, and planning.
To learn more about this forum visit www.asbtci.org or email team@asbtci.org. There will be other business training workshops held locally in coming weeks. See the Porch Press Calendar for more events.
