On March 29th over 50 local business owners attended the Village Alliance's Spring Business Forum and Networking Event, co-sponsored by the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce and Citibank. After wine and cheese, the crowd settled in to hear three insightful presentations on the evening's topic, "Leveraging Technology to Grow Your Business."
Trevor Sumner, President of LocaVox, kicked us off with a whirlwind tour of the challenges small businesses face when trying to keep afloat in today's digital marketing environment.
Andrew Barnett, Managing Partner at Cathedral Consulting, next gave the audience a primer on what financial and organizational aspects to consider before investing in technolgy upgrades.
And FInally, CK Chung, Director of the Lower Manhattan Business Solutions Center, informed the crowd of free services from New York City aimed to help entrepreneurs grom their business.
Thank you to Citibank for sponsoring the event, and to all of our presenters who took the time to inform our local community about ways to stay ahead of the curve. Stay tuned to the Village Alliance blog for more business assistance tools and events.
