Montgomery County’s Business Connect is planned to launch in Silver Spring this upcoming Monday, August 5th at 3:30 p.m. located at the Silver Spring Library, 900 Wayne Avenue.
Councilman Marc Elrich announced Business Connect as a program tailored to help support small businesses in Montgomery County by providing free training, workshops, and individual counseling sessions. Elrich helped create this program in efforts to diversify economic development.
“Making connections is important for business owners,” said Montgomery County Assistant Chief Administrative Officer Jerome Fletcher who oversees economic development. “This new program connects businesses with the resources they need to grow and thrive. In addition, it offers new and existing business owners counseling. We want business owners to know we are here to help if they need assistance or have questions.”
The Business Connect program will be offered in several locations in the Silver Spring regional area including the Long Branch Community Center, the Long Branch Library, and the Silver Spring Library.
