Our goal is to have as many small business owners connect with each other to build a virtual small business community, develop connections, encourage and support one another and hopefully get inspired. Think of it like a virtual business card. 


On the social connect page your photo, company name, owner's name and radio buttons that are connected to your company social media sites, and website will be displayed.  Think about it as “free” marketing. Everyone who applies for the grant will learn about your company, Everyone who visits our sponsors' sites can learn about your business.
