The Bay Area Entrepreneur Center kicked-off its 3-day virtual conference, the Small Business Symposium: Lessons in Adapting. The Symposium was held from October 31st through November 2nd and featured keynote speakers, workshops, local and small business owner interviews, student interest panels and resources from community leaders. The goal of the Symposium was to explore the challenges our small businesses are facing, in navigating the impacts of the pandemic, with a focus on access to valuable resources and online tools. The Symposium allowed the BAEC to highlight our new Micro Grants Program as part of the Small Business Recovery & Assistance Program, an innovative approach to helping businesses adapt operations and marketing strategies. The BAEC will be offering 16 small San Bruno-based businesses grants of $3000 each to assist with business expenses and improvements. The Symposium was free to attend, featured virtual door prizes and was attended by business owners here in San Bruno, throughout the county and the entire Bay Area.
A special thank you to all of our attendees, guest speakers and presenters, our students and to everyone behind the scenes who helped make the Symposium such a success. We thank the San Bruno Community Foundation for the supporting this program with funding.
