PINE BLUFF, Ark. – As an organization that is dedicated to helping individuals pursue their dreams of starting a business and assisting those who are in business, the UAPB Economic Research and Development Center (ERDC) and its Business Support Incubator will commemorate National Entrepreneurship Month Saturday November 24 with Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to supporting local small businesses nationwide. The event is free and open to the public.
“America is known around the world as a country that empowers the inventor and the innovator. Ours is a Nation where men and women can take a chance on a dream — where they can take an idea that starts around a kitchen table or in a garage and turn it into a new business or a new industry,” said President Barack Obama in his official proclamation. “Because the new businesses created by entrepreneurs are responsible for most of the new jobs in our country, helping them succeed is essential to helping our economy grow.”
Any businesses that would like to be included in the Business Support Incubator database please call (870) 575-8030 or email your information (business name, address and phone) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
