This Spring, Bring your Business to the Big Leagues

Big clients — like corporations and government agencies — mean big bucks. But many small-business owners struggle to win them over. The networking, bidding and reporting processes scare away thousands of entrepreneurs who could otherwise win lucrative contracts.

That’s why the Intersect Fund has signed on to partner with the New Jersey Associate of Women Business Owners in hosting its 15th Annual Growth & Procurement Conference on Thursday, April 18th, 2013 at the Pines Manor in Edison, NJ.

The event will feature panels, speakers and workshops that aim to guide you in bidding on big contracts from corporations, agencies, and even the organizers of the Superbowl, which will come to New Jersey next year.

If you’d like to sign up — and we hope you will — click here. Type the promotional code “procurepartner2013″ to receive reduced, member-level pricing. Also, you’ll receive an additional 10 percent discount if you register by January 31st.

Why Shopping Small is In this Season

Don’t tell me you went to a chain-store yesterday!

Shopping small is in this season.

Efforts like“Indie-Shopping” campaigns and Small Business Saturday (that’s today), mark a conscious effort by more Americans to patronize local businesses.

In addition to quality and customer service, economic benefits draw folks into mom-and-pop operations: small businesses keep a larger portion of their dollars in the local economy than their big-box counterparts do.

Lavon Jackson, who co-owns the Somerset clothing boutique Style & Swag with his wife Carol, cites prospect of creating jobs and reinvigorating his local economy as big motivators.

“When you shop small, you get big things,” Jackson said.

To get into the small-shopping swing of things, join the Intersect Fund at one (or both) of our upcoming Holiday Bazaars.

We’ll host one on Tuesday, Dec. 13th and another on Tuesday, Dec. 20th – both at New Brunswick’s Hyatt Regency Hotel. Click on either date to RSVP.
