April 6th, 2021 · Leave a Comment

Florida’s small businesses are invited to register for the Virtual Small Business Resiliency Conference: Sustain the Pivot, a no-cost event hosted by the Florida Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network and the Office of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. The event will take place May 18-19, 2021.

This multi-day, virtual conference will equip Florida’s small businesses with the strategies and resources needed to navigate the ongoing challenges of COVID-19 and connect them with resource providers who can aid in their long-term recovery.

The event will feature presentations from Florida SBDC Network business consultants on topics including marketing, cybersecurity, capital access, and human resources. Consultants will share business insights and discuss how attendees can leverage the network’s service offering of no-cost consulting, training, and resources. Each half-day session will conclude with a post-event presentation in Spanish.

Senator Marco Rubio will deliver a welcome address emphasizing the importance of small businesses to the state’s economy. There will also be keynote presentations by Emily Ley, CEO of Simplified, and John Gilmore, former tight end for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and president and CEO of Brandthumb. During these presentations, attendees will learn additional skills and knowledge to help their business succeed despite difficult circumstances.

As a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Senator Rubio has made it his priority to ensure America’s 30 million small businesses have access to the resources and capital they need to help them compete in the 21st-century global economy.
