Wow, what an event! This past week Meet Advisors had the opportunity to participate in the 3rd Quarter Neighborhood Business Development Center (NBDC) Workshop put on by the Chicago Small Business Hub.
Chicago City Chambers and various business groups joined together in a meeting of the minds at the Chicago Cultural Center. Each chamber pitched creative ideas inspired by innovation and the desire to positively impact local communities. With a creative environment and a panel of helpful and interested judges, it was an opportunity to educate, exchange ideas, and learn about the needs of various people in local Chicago neighborhoods.
After each presentation, a panel of judges consisting of Adam Fridman, Founder of Mabbly and MeetAdvisors, Jason Montrie from Land of Lincoln Health, and Michael Cavanaugh from the SBAC, offered up some great advice on how to better grow their respective Chambers and how to have a larger impact on the community.
