You are cordially invited to our Annual Celebrating Success fundraiser on September 6th, 2019 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at The For the City Center as we celebrate our 15 year anniversary. Every year, this event honors the achievements of our clients and their contributions to the local economy. This year we are especially pleased to announce we will be celebrating our 15 year anniversary. Created initially to improve the technology digital divide in our community, EGBI then evolved to help business owners better understand how to run a successful business. Since 2011, EGBI has provided assistance to over 2,000 individuals looking to start or grow their small business. From 2011 – 2019, EGBI businesses have generated over $104 million in revenue and supported over 160 full-time employees.
As always, 100% of the services contracted at this event are provided by EGBI clients, from the food to the linens on the table. Celebrating Success luncheon also includes a business expo, where EGBI clients will have an opportunity to showcase and sell their products and services. We are so excited to bring this opportunity to our clients. We have been nurturing our family-owned businesses through education and resources. This is a great way to continue our support by connecting them with a number of community leaders, business consultants, professionals, and other entrepreneurs.
“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 am honored to work for an organization whose clients are trying to provide a better life for their families and their employees. Our clients are truly living the American dream.” Barbra Boeta, Executive Director of EGBI
Sponsorship opportunities are available throughout the year. 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.
