Celebrating Success

Let’s come together again to celebrate the accomplishments of EGBI and its clients. In 2022, EGBI served over 415 individuals by providing over 238 training hours and over 780 hours of one-on-one coaching. EGBI clients reported over $44 million in revenue.

Celebrating Success luncheon will be held on October 19th 2023, from 11:30 AM to 1 PM at the Norris Conference Center 2525 W Anderson Ln. Austin, TX 78757 in the Red Oak Ballroom. In keeping with tradition, we will showcase products and services with our EGBI small business expo, where you attendees will be able to purchase different items and services from local small businesses.  We will open doors a bit earlier at 11:00 AM for those that want extra time to shop and to mix & mingle with EGBI Alumni and other attendees.

Lunch will be served buffet style and this is what is on the menu: roasted turkey breast stuffed with cranberries, fennel sausage, figs with a white wine cream sauce on the side. The sides will be delicious, caramelized onion scalloped potatoes and Italian veggies.  Strawberry, Pecan & Feta mixed field green salad rolls with butter.  For vegetarians we will have the option of stuffed portabellas. 

Vendors include Athena Silversmith, CompuPlus, La Chatita, LLC, Gypsie Images,  Sharafina Designs, and Social Justice Jewelry.

EGBI is an organization that truly cares for small businesses. They listen, take the time to know you and your business to better understand your situation and provide the right guidance and resources according to your needs.” Nayeli Gallegos, President at Red Carpet Productions, LLC and EGBI Alumni

I was honored to work for an organization whose clients are trying to provide a better life for their families and their employees. EGBI’s clients are truly living the American dream.” Barbra Boeta, former Executive Director of EGBI

Sponsorship opportunities are available throughout the year. Your sponsorship will go towards EGBI’s programs and services. 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.
