ATTLEBORO — In an effort to bolster small businesses and encourage the development of new ones, the city’s office of economic development headed up by Catherine Feerick is sponsoring a “Building Your Business Workshop” on Sept. 5.
It’s open to Attleboro and non-Attleboro residents alike. A press release from Mayor Paul Heroux said the workshop will provide information on how to start, manage and grow a business.
Speakers from the Small Business Administration, Massachusetts Small Business Development Center, Massachusetts Exports Center, and SEED Corporation will attend and provide information on how to tap into free or low-cost resources that can help make a business dream a reality.
Topics will include crafting a successful business plan, accessing funding, and ways to expand markets.
The event will take place Thursday, Sept. 5 in the Community Room at Cardi’s Furniture, 999 Newport Ave.
The workshop starts at noon and runs to 2 p.m. A one-hour networking session follows.
The event is free, but registration is required. Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch. Light refreshments will be available.
