“Conquering Risk” is the theme of the 2021 America’s SBDC Virtual Conference scheduled for Tuesday, September 21 – Friday, September 24. Annually, the conference brings together SBDCs, peers, partners and sponsors to discuss issues affecting small businesses. Given the reality of disruption impacting small businesses and the rapid rate of change, risk management is essential for the success and survival of small businesses today. The conference this year is an opportunity for professionals to share best practices and resources to respond to crises and risks, adapt in uncertain times, and find solutions for their clients.
The 2021 ASBDC Conference registration is open to SBDC and non-SBDC attendees. The tentative schedule for the conference is available with a listing of the speakers for the Wednesday and Thursday General Sessions as well as a listing of the workshops, which will remain available on-demand for six months.
Be sure to connect with SBDCNet at our virtual booth during the conference and view our workshop, “Managing Risk with Market Research.”
