On Thursday, March 24th we are very excited to host a special seminar on IBM Corporation’s outstanding resource for small and medium sized businesses, the SME Toolkit. This event will take place at the ASU SkySong campus beginning at 9:00 a.m. and will allow participants the opportunity to learn just what it is the SME Toolkit has to offer. In addition to our excellent speakers discussing the many benefits of the Toolkit, attendees will have the chance to network with other like-minded business leaders from across the state and will be entered to win great raffle prizes, including a set of Arizona HR compliance books, and tickets to upcoming Arizona Chamber events. The event is being promoted in part by our community partners: the American Indian Chamber of Commerce of Arizona, the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Arizona Small Business Association and ASU SkySong.
What makes this website unique and why we think this event is so important, is that the Toolkit offers resources for everything that a small business owner needs to get a company off the ground or to expand a currently existing company. In an economy with soaring unemployment rates, we believe that a website dedicated to putting software, business forms, tools and training, all for free(!), into the hands of Arizona’s business leaders is a necessity. The SME Toolkit provides these resources for every aspect of business development, from accounting & finance to marketing and sales, human resources to technology, everything is covered.
I hope you will be able to join us on the 24th for this timely and informational event. Registrations are still being accepted, so be sure to get yours in today.
