UPDATE: 2020 South Sound Business Summit

It looks like the virus is not improving. With that said, we unfortunately will not be meeting in person this year. However, we are excited to be moving this event to an online event for this year. This was a hard decision to make, but an important one to make sure that everyone stays safe.

The GOOD NEWS is that all three speakers have agreed to video their presentation specifically for us. We also have developed an online expo which allows members to learn more about your business/organization.  I also believe that being able to be flexible and review the videos at your leisure creates more flexibility, no one likes waking up early!

All who are registered for the summit will receive emails by May 5, 2020 with the link and password to access the online summit. The link and videos will be available for 6 months. 

All profits will continue to support the Washington State Small Business Development Center. We know that business owners are flexible and we appreciate your support!
