May is Small Business month and the first week is Small Business week and, for the sixth year in a row, The LEE Group is pleased to announce its annual Small Business Workshop presented by Fifth Third Bank. It will be held Wednesday, May 6th, 2020, 8am – 1pm, 440 Burroughs Street, TechTown, in Detroit. This year’s theme is “Leveling the Playing Field”.
Can we create an equitable economy? Many believe the gap is widening and not shrinking. But how can the field become balanced where inclusiveness is valued and rewarded? What methods work? What strategies can be implemented to address these challenges?
These questions will be addressed and this event will provide opportunities to talk about what works and what doesn’t in trying to level the playing field for women and minorities who have been left out of the economy for centuries.
And you don’t want to miss it!
It will feature speakers, panelists, workshop topics and vendors focused on growing and sustaining your business.
And you will an opportunity to learn and network while gaining tools and resources from business and community leaders from across the Detroit region.
Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to attend breakout sessions focused on access to capital, identifying talent in an economy where talent “gaps” exist in a changing economy, understanding economic patterns and its impact achieving an equitable economy, identifying business sustainability strategies and understanding the financial value a customer brings to your business.
