On June 21-23, MWBC teamed up with Verizon to host THREE special in-person events for small businesses. More than 130 women entrepreneurs and small business representatives registered for the events, which were held in Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, D.C. in an effort to reach the most number of small businesses in our area.
Approximately 75 people attended the events to network with local business leaders and meet Verizon representatives to learn more about Verizon’s Small Business Digital Ready program—which features FREE online training, business tools, and personalized coaching to enhance your success in a digital marketplace.
Participation in Verizon’s Small Business Digital Ready program can unlock the opportunity to apply for Verizon’s small business grant program and receive up to a $10,000 grant as long as you apply for the grant BY 06/30/22. Visit Verizon’s Small Business Digital Ready program to begin.
Verizon representatives, along with staff members of MWBC, SCORE Washington, D.C., and Women’s Business Center of Northern Virginia at Community Business Partnership attended each event to discuss small business needs and answer questions. We are grateful to Verizon and our valued event partners for their continued support of women entrepreneurs and small businesses in our region.
