Virtual "Coffee and Conversation" with SCORE Chicago Mentors


Nov 11, 2020 10:00 AM in Central Time (US and Canada)



The COVID-19 pandemic and civil unrest have had some devastating effects on small businesses across the United States, but Black-owned businesses were hit the hardest, experiencing a 41% drop in revenues, according to the Federal Reserve Bank. With declining revenues, many businesses have had to lay off employees.

Access to business education, mentoring, networks, and opportunities is vital to the survival and success of Black-owned businesses. In fact, the economic health, stability, and sustainability of Black communities depend on it. 

Our "Coffee and Conversation" webinar is designed to provide business advice, insights and consulting in a casual conversation format. The SCORE Chicago panel of talented mentors and business experts will shed light on the opportunities yet be tapped in underserved communities, and they will answer questions on Business Planning, Marketing, Accounting, Business Management and Operations, Strategic Planning, Contracting and Procurement and other topics. Attendees will learn how to market their business, improve operations, reduce expenses, and increase revenues to grow into a scalable, sustainable, and profitable business.
