Time For Small Business Success In Tampa Bay!

Central Florida Community Planning and Development (CFCPD) in conjunction with SmallBusinessSymposium.com is bringing yet another Small Business Symposium to the Tampa Bay area. This event will connect prospective and current businesses with resources and vendors. The goal is to ensure that each participant…

  • Get FREE actionable information that will contribute to your business’ stability
  • Develop skills to identify the strengths and flaws like a true key decision maker
  • Learn to address inefficiencies which contribute to failure and reduce success
  • Receive information from influential leaders you wouldn’t otherwise encounter

The Small Business Symposium is a FREE event that is open to business owners in Tampa Bay and to those that are interested in starting a business of their own.  All Small Business Symposium presentations are meant to offer you helpful, unbiased, and actionable information. And most importantly, there will be no sales pitches coming from the sponsors or presenters.

Attendees will receive financial, marketing, and business advice through a live panel discussion and networking luncheon.
