5 Avenues for Business Growth and Professional Development

 

Whether you’re looking for growth opportunities and connection points for your business or are looking to get more involved in the community for your own professional development, here are a few options to get you started. Have you already considered some of these avenues?

NETWORK – Build relationships with others in the community at events like Business After Hours.

BE GENEROUS – Find a way to give back to the community through mentorship or education. Sign up for access2experience or have your organization host a workshop through Business AfterSchool, where businesses give students a taste of what a career in their industry looks like.

 

FIND NEW OPPORTUNITIES – Look into new avenues for business growth, such as government contracting or other expansion options.

CARE FOR YOUR PEOPLE – and in turn care for your company. Invest in your employees’ education through partnership with a program such as Greater Minds, which helps working adults go back to school.

STAY IN THE KNOW – Learn from others’ failures and successes and explore practical solutions through events like BizStreet, informative and engaging sessions centered around a business related topic.
