‘Grow Glendale’ Small Business Summit Returns

Glendale has announced its second annual small business summit “Let’s Grow Glendale,” which will be held on May 2 at the Embassy Suites in Glendale from 1:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The half-day event, located at 800 N. Central Ave., is specifically designed for business owners and entrepreneurs who will provide leading-edge business development content and resources, valuable information on capital resources, networking opportunities and inspiration for both new and experienced small business owners and entrepreneurs alike.
“Glendale’s small business community represents hundreds of jobs and serves as the backbone of our local economy,” said Mayor Elen Asatryan. “We’re bringing together experts and leaders who can provide real world advice that businesses will be able to apply to help them to succeed.
“We have also incorporated content targeted to women-owned and minority-owned businesses because we must be intentional in ensuring that our diverse business communities have access to resources to help them grow and thrive.”
The summit was developed in combination with the Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week held from April 28 to May 4. Many of the summit’s guest speakers will be representatives from the SBA, along with various business resource partners.
Each summit attendee can participate in their choice of breakout sessions, which include Financial Fusion: Exploring Opportunities and Insights in the Lender Roundtable; Strategic Approach to Business Success — A Focus on Business Planning; Empowering Growth: Navigating Certifications and Procurement for Small Businesses — Your Path to Informed Success; Smart Finances for Business Success: Know Your Numbers; Unlocking Financial Potential: Navigating the Landscape of Access to Capital for Businesses; and Strategic Outreach: Mastering the Art of Marketing to Corporate and Government Entities.
Along with the breakout sessions and business resource exhibition, the summit will feature an afternoon networking celebration starting at 5:15 p.m. with food and entertainment, providing even more business connection opportunities.
