Private Business, Public Purpose: Doing Well By Doing Good for Your Small Business
Session 3: 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Category: Business

Community Engagement feels good, but it’s also smart business. Learn how some thriving local businesses have made community involvement a key part of their marketing strategy and business development. In this workshop you will hear how local small businesses, like Cole Hardware and Sports Basement, have used community engagement to achieve their goals through being part of the community. Learn about how they activate these programs and partnerships, and the balancing act that comes with doing good in the community and doing well for your business.

All programs are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. Reasonable arrangements for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested at least 2 weeks in advance. For more information, contact info@sfsmallbusinessweek.com.
