Virtual event scheduled today from noon-1:30 p.m.
The South Carolina District Office launched a 46 Counties in 46 Days initiative last month to increase awareness of the resources available to small businesses across the state, with a particular focus on rural areas. Originally, there was to be an event for Union County on March 31st, but instead, they changed it to combine Union and Spartanburg Counties. The event will be held today from noon-1:30. The virtual small business event will include resources on business start-up, lending, contracting, and disaster preparedness. To take part in the online event, register at Eventbrite.com.

The event is being presented as a partnership with the Small Business Administration SC District Office, SC Department of Commerce, SC Department of Transportation, SC Department of Agriculture, Small Business Development Center—Winthrop Region, Women’s Business Center—Community Works, and the SC Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
