The Preble County Development Partnership and the City of Eaton partnered with the BusinessFirst! resource team to host the County’s first Small Business Resource Rally. The event was held at the Eaton Country Club.
We began the morning with a small business panel which included Jim Simon (Simon Insurance Agency), Kelly McQueen (Opti-Vise IT) and Jared Springer (Flory Fabricators). Each panelist described their business, discussed opportunities, challenges, local resources that have been helpful in their growth, and the most effective tools they have found to help identify new customers.
Some additional topics on the agenda were Preble County Library Resources for Business, the Small Business Development Center, OhioMeansJobs – Preble County, Miami Valley CTC, CountyCorp, SBA, and others.
The event received exceptionally positive feedback from those in attendance. Thank you panelists, BusinessFirst! and Preble County resource partners!
