Speed Dating Event to Tune-up Small Businesses

Ocala, Florida (March 20, 2015) – The Villages & Ocala Chapter of SCORE, in partnership with the CEP’s Power Plant Business Incubator, will be hosting an event entitled, “SCORE Small Business Tune-up: Speed Dating with Small Business Resource Providers.”
The purpose of the event is to allow small businesses an opportunity to briefly meet with and ask questions of experts in the areas of law, accounting, marketing/branding, sales, internet marketing, finance, and insurance among other subjects. A total of 11 business subjects will be represented, with 2 subject matter experts at each table. Business owners may choose up to 6 subjects/tables to visit with, and they will rotate from table-to-table every 20 minutes.
This event, which corresponds with National Small Business Week, will be held on Wednesday, May 6, from 6PM until 8PM at the Power Plant Business Incubator in the 2nd Floor Training Room. The incubator is located at 405 SE Osceola Ave. in Ocala.
“Every small business has challenges” said Barry Black, SCORE Chapter Chair. “This is a chance for business owners to begin getting their toughest questions answered – and to hear from multiple perspectives and areas of expertise in the process.”
Ryan Lilly, Director of Business Creation for the CEP agreed saying, “While not every problem a small business has can be addressed in a 20 minute conversation, or let-alone in one night, businesses will at least start to make progress and can make arrangements for follow-on discussion.”
Tickets to this event are $10 per person, and can be purchased through SCORE at At sign-up, attendees will be asked to identify up to 6 topics that they would like to cover.
