We’re launching this brave new year off with a celebration of our community and bringing back our beloved Local Socials! Please join us for this FREE event at the gorgeous Smoky Park Supper Club, nestled by the river near the River Arts District.
Local Socials are intentional gatherings of people in our local business community. Collaboration is key to our resilience and our goal is to strengthen Asheville’s unique character, grow better businesses and open opportunities for more dynamic and democratic work-spaces.
We’re bringing together those that have key knowledge and experience, helping to boost our local economy and grow our network. We’ll start with 30 minutes introducing the work of the organizers listed below. Each has a myriad of free resources that we feel are key to growing successful and resilient local businesses.
We’re proud to introduce you to these resourceful Local Social partners dedicated to growing a strong local economy:
Duane Adams, AB Tech Small Business Center
Sandra Dennison, Small Business Technology and Development Center
Tommy Dennison, Carolina Small Business Development Fund
Dana Frankel, Brenda Mills & Sam Powers, Economic Development Department, City of Asheville
Meghan Rogers, Benjamin Colvin, Nicole Bentley, Asheville Downtown Association
Franzi Charen, Michele Bryan & the AGBA Steering Committee, Asheville Grown Business Alliance
Come learn more about our work and share with us what is new for you in this year ahead!
