City Heights To Host Inaugural Business Expo
City Heights will host its inaugural business expo on Saturday, where new or aspiring business owners can find services and resources from local organizations.
The event will also feature local small businesses that received technical and financial assistance from area non-profits. Visitors can get on-the-spot counseling and business advice and browse informational booths from local non-profits who have resources to help launch a business.
The City Heights Community Development Corporation is hosting the event.
"Even if they're not launched yet and if they're ready to start, they can actually come here and apply for a microloan here on site. They can fill out applications, they can talk to a provider about...how much capital they would need to launch," said Rosie Sanchez-Ulloa, a program manager with the City Heights Community Development Corporation.
The event is free and will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Fair@44 at 4350 El Cajon Blvd. It will also feature free food samples from local vendors and musical performances.
