We are pleased to announce that our 6th Annual Celebrating Success will take place on September 16, 2016. Like every year, this event will honor the achievements of our clients and their contributions to the local economy. This year, we are changing the format of the event, and Celebrating Success will be a luncheon (11:30 am-1:30 pm) that will include a business expo, where EGBI clients will have an opportunity to showcase and sell their products and services.

We are excited to bring this opportunity to our clients. We have been nurturing our family-owned businesses through education and resources. This will be a great way to continue our support by connecting them with a number of community leaders, business consultants, professionals and other entrepreneurs.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Your support helps us connect individuals to the resources and education they need to make them successful business owners. As you may know, although Austin is an awesome city for small businesses,  not everyone has equal access to great resources. We hope you view this as an opportunity that needs to be addressed, and that you join our efforts and help us create, grow and sustain successful grassroots businesses, contributing to Austin’s economy and the prosperity of their families.

Please click here to view our Sponsorship levels, fill out the form and contact Al Lopez (al.lopez@egbi.org, 512-928-2594) with any questions or comments. You can also do it online, just click here!

If you are an EGBI client and would like to participate in the business expo, please contact Nayeli Gallegos (nayeli.gallegos@egbi.org).
