Office of Business Inclusion & Advancement - April 23, 2019
The city, in partnership with the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce, the Winston-Salem Black Chamber and the FTCC Small Business Center, is holding its fifth annual Mixer on Tuesday, May 7, to help small businesses, minority-owned businesses and woman-owned businesses learn about opportunities to do business with the city, with other companies and with local contractors.
The Mixer will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the S.G. Atkins CDC, 1922 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Winston-Salem. All size businesses are invited to attend, including larger companies that use local business for goods and services.
The Mixer will offer open networking to meet fellow business owners, along with two speed networking opportunities: Construction Trades Speed Networking for one-on-one meetings with general contractors and engineers who use subs; and City Department Speed Networking for one-on-one meetings with city departments that purchase goods and services. Space for speed networking is limited and registration is required. Participation will be first come, first served.
The registration deadline for speed networking is April 30. The registration deadline for open networking is May 3. Register at CityofWS.org/WSMixer.
Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served. Attendance is free. For more information call Tiesha Hinton at 336-734-1262 or send an email to Tiesha.
