Can Oregon small businesses get some of the almost $1 trillion in stimulus money soon coming down the pike? It is not a little question, that's for sure. A recent report from the Center for American Progress shows that Oregon businesses can expect to receive more than $6.5 billion in federal stimulus funds.
Yet despite this enormous opportunity, many small business owners may be unclear about how to capitalize on the allocation. Here is where to start:
On Tuesday, June 23, Oregon will host an American Express OPEN/ SCORE “Small Business Speed Coaching” event. This interactive half-day program that pairs small business owners with experienced business coaches for 30-minute one-on-one counseling sessions to help develop strategies to weather the current economic environment and learn how to access federal stimulus funds.
SCORE is a great friend to small business. It would behoove you to check it out.
Here are the details:
If you can't make it, you can always go to the SCORE website to learn more at www.SCORE.org, or www.openforum.com.
