Oswego hosting small business fair next Tuesday, March 5

Looking to expand your Oswego-based small business, but aren’t sure where to start? Or, do you have a clear vision but need funding and other resources to make it happen?

The Village of Oswego has rescheduled Scale Up: A Small Business Resource Fair for Tuesday, March 5, to help connect Oswego businesses to lenders and other community resources.

This resource fair, initially canceled due to frigid temperatures in January, is designed to bring small business owners together with lenders, utilities, nonprofit and government organization to help entrepreneurs looking to expand their businesses find available resources.

Scale Up 2019: A Small Business Resource Fair will now be held from 8 to 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 5, in the community room of the Oswego Fire Protection District, 3511 Wooley Road. The fair will include a brief presentation on resources and incentives available through the Village of Oswego’s economic development department, followed by an opportunity to meet with representatives from banks, utilities, business-focused non-profit agencies and local government.

“The idea behind the event is to connect small business owners with new resources they may not have previously thought of,” said Economic Development Director Corinna Cole. “Attendees will be able to learn about business banking products and SBA loans to expand their businesses, find classes and workshops to better develop and train their workforce, discuss how to overcome barriers like permitting and infrastructure needs, and get questions answered.”

Best of all, the fair is free, as are many of the programs and resources that will be represented.

No registration is required. Simply show up ready to learn and scale up your business this year.

For more information about Scale Up 2019, or to start a conversation on helping your small business thrive in Oswego, contact Community Engagement Coordinator Julie Hoffman at 630-551-2344 or jhoffman@oswegoil.org.

More information about this event and other resources for local small businesses is available at oswegoil.org/economic-development.
