Our community can no longer depend on some big business rescuing us. I have nothing against big businesses, but micro and small businesses are the future of the American economy just as much as the large businesses. This is why I will work to make sure our local businesses including minority and women owned businesses are given a fair shot at knowing about city contracts bids.
Sadly many new businesses fail very quickly. Why they do not know what resources are available to help them with mentorship, business plans, financing, marketing plans, and expertise to move them through the maze of government regulations.
You do not need to fail. You can succeed. Call the Small Business Development Center before you do anything that you will regret. Whether you are planning a start up or wish to fix your existing business, they can help http://www.delawaresbdc.org/ or 678-1555.
I also encourage you to go to the Kent County Open for Business event at Levy Court near Target on the First Thursday of each month. 8 to 10 AM. "Kent County is Open for Business" is a series of FREE business development sessions . For more information, please call 302-734-7513 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Delmarva Black Chamber of Commerce is another resource. 302-8600. You will want to avail yourself of the networking opportunities available.
