The Pikes Peak Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is partnering with local small business owners to launch a new bi-monthly series called #SMALLBIZREALTALK. The goal of the series is to champion small businesses and strengthen our local entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing networking and “real talk” conversations about the challenges of owning a business. Local business owners will host entrepreneurs at their locations and share the ins and ins-and-outs of running a small business.

“The SBDC is the leader in small business education. Responding to the needs of our small business community is our highest priority. In our digital world of education and stale workshops of people talking AT you, it was time to launch #SMALLBIZREALTALK,” said Aikta Marcoulier, Pikes Peak SBDC Executive Director. “An experiential series which brings back the opportunity for entrepreneurs to see, feel, hear and interact with those that have been there…and done that. This is education down at the root level, no powerpoints, no handouts just REAL TALK.”

The first in a series of #SMALLBIZREALTALK will be held on Friday, January 24, 9:00 am – 10:30 am, at Sparkles and Lace Boutique, 2140 W Garden of the Gods Road. For a schedule of upcoming #SMALLBIZREALTALK, please visit www.pikespeaksbdc.org/smallbizrealtalk.
