This past Tuesday night, a buddy of mine invited me to an ISED (Iowans for Social & Economic Development) Event at the Corinthian Church downtown. It was a vendor show/networking extravaganza/graduation party all wrapped up into one.
“Iowans for Social and Economic Development Development partners with community members, agencies, organizations and businesses across Iowa to provide comprehensive asset-building services. Each year, ISED helps hundreds of Iowans to build the foundation toward a stronger, more economically viable future.”
ISED offers several FREE programs and classes to small business owners and those considering becoming small business owners. They are starting a networking group called Alliance of Business Owners (ABO) and I just became a member. What a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of what’s up-and-coming in our community.
What additional resources are you aware of that support and advise small business owners?
