Are You An Entrepreneur or Looking to Become One?

Any entrepreneur that is interested should work with a Small Business Development Center (SBDC) or a SCORE Association in order to prepare their business plan and be prepared prior to the event. (Below are the contacts for both). When contacting either, ask about attending the March 13th Meet the Lenders event to get more information!
