Celebrating Small Businesses in the Harrisburg Region

Join us in celebrating the second annual Pennsylvania Small Business Week April 30-May 6, 2017 when the significant contributions of our small businesses and the resources available to support their growth here in the Keystone State are recognized.  There’s plenty to celebrate!  Pennsylvania is home to 1 million small businesses which account for 99.6% of business in the state.  They also employ 2.5 million individuals which equals about half of the state’s private workforce. There is no doubt that small businesses play a vital role in our economy across the state and here in our Harrisburg region.

The Harrisburg Regional Chamber and CREDC along with many partners provide a number of resources to help small businesses get started including individual counseling and incubator space at the Techcelerator @ Carlisle powered by CREDC.   From the small coffee shops and retail stores in our downtown centers, to the professional services and technology startups that power the business climate, small businesses have support systems to succeed in almost every industry sector throughout our community.

We invite you to join in the celebration of Pennsylvania’s entrepreneurs through informational webinars taking place throughout the week hosted by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. Small business owners can also participate in other educational programs across the state. Each free webinar in the series will be presented by experienced business experts.

To register for these webinars and for a complete list of workshops, trainings, and seminars, visit dced.pa.gov/PASmallBiz. Don’t forget to follow along and participate in the conversation by using #PASmallBiz17 on social media.
