Small Business is Big – Celebrate with Us!

SmallBusiness_Facebook_1The President has declared May 1 – 7 national Small Business Week and we want to help support and recognize all of the great small businesses throughout our community doing great things. Did you know that 76% of GSI members have 50 or fewer employees and that 42% have 10 or fewer employees?

GSI is working to create something greater in our community and we’re glad that our small business members are helping us. In addition to supporting the development of our community and our region that ultimately brings dollars to your front door, we offer a full array of programs and services through our BizStreet Small Business Program dedicated to helping your small business do more business: educational opportunities, intentional connections, cost-savings programs (Small Business Appreciation event is coming up!) are just the beginning. Here are just a few.
