Description

Join us for a new take on our 5th Annual Show Me the Money: Small Business Support Showcase and Networking Event!

Since our first Show Me the Money event in February 2014, our goal was to bring together all of the resources that a small business owner may need into one room. The idea was efficiency- you may not need all of these resources now, but at least you'll have them in your pocket for when you do. Over the years, we've tried to ensure that the event provides value to busy small business owners. With this in mind, we provided a workshop and guest speaker at the event starting in 2018.

For our 2019 event, we're thrilled to continue to bring you the same great resources for small business support and financing/grants. Again this year, we are adding an amazing, interactive workshop with Michelle Scurter, CEO + Founder with The Millenial Strategist.
