There are lots of great business resources coming up this week.  We just wanted to give you a heads up so you can plug your calendar and find the help you need to grow your business.

2013 Pompano Beach Business Expo

The Greater Pompano Beach Chamber, along with the Pompano Beach CRA is hosting a business expo (business showcase).  The expo is free for residents and is a great way to interact with the many start ups and businesses in the Pompano Beach community.

A few reasons why you should attend are.

  1. You can use this opportunity to learn about these businesses showcased and the services they provided.
  2. You have an opportunity to gain insight on how these businesses got started and what makes them successful.
  3. If you’re starting a business, you get a chance to see who your competition is.
