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:
Tuesday, June 23, 2009
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Oregon Convention Center
777 NE MLK, Jr. Blvd.
Portland, OR 97232

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.
