The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) is holding a small business summit in Clovis on Tuesday, October 13, from 7:30 a.m. to noon, to help small business owners and entrepreneurs access resources to expand and add jobs.

It is part of a series of small business summits that will be held statewide, according to California Small Business Advocate Jesse Torres. “We are starting the summits in Clovis to help the center of the state continue to grow its economy and create jobs after the recession,” said Torres.

The touring event program features presentations on the new California Business Portal, the Governor’s Economic Development Initiatives, the Office of International Affairs, the Office of Small Business Advocate, California Business Investment Services, California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank and local economic development resources offered by Fresno State University.  An expo featuring local resource partners and other state agencies accompanies the event.  The summit is free to the public.

A second summit will be in San Francisco on December 10. Future summit dates for 2016 will be announced later this year.
