Calling All Hampton Roads Entrepreneurs!

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are more than 450,000 franchises in operation throughout the country. With that said, there is still an unlimited amount of opportunity associated with the start-up of one of these franchised businesses in our local neighborhood. If you interested in furthering your entrepreneurial skills, there’s an upcoming, Hampton Roads event you won’t want to miss!

Sponsored by the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, the upcoming Franchising 101 Conference is completely devoted to the concept of franchising. So whether you want to go into business or take an existing one to a new level, we recommend checking out this event. Attendees will learn how to identify businesses that are thriving in the economy, along with the laws and regulations involved with franchising. They will also receive entrepreneurial and ownership tips. The conference is set to take place the morning of April 21st at the Peninsular Workforce Center. You’ll find it on Butler Farm Road and there is parking close by.

This conference is expected to run for three hours, from 9 a.m. until noon. The center itself is open from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. It serves as a year-round, career resource center, so you may want to stick around after the conference to learn more about employer and employee initiatives currently offered in the area. Plus, there is a Small Business Development Center on site.

The SBDC is exceptionally useful for residents of Waypoint apartments that are looking to fine-tune their entrepreneurial skills or access helpful, professional resources. Please note, special resources are available for members of the military and their families too.
