The Rogue Valley Business Resource Forum is back for its fifteenth year with numerous resources to take your business to the next level. This event is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to network with hundreds of small business owners, attend seminars covering topics for all stages of business growth, and receive one-on-one consultations with 25+ small business agency representatives. This is the largest annual gathering of business resources in Southern Oregon, offering a full day of information to help your small business succeed. Previous attendee and local business owner, Lauren Trantham, says, “Being a small business owner can sometimes feel lonely and challenging. The Rogue Valley Business Forum reminds us that there is a ton of support for us in this phenomenal community. The forum is an excellent place to learn, make connections, and elevate your business to the next level. We are very lucky to have it here in the Rogue Valley.” The forum will take place on Friday, October 20, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the RCC/SOU HEC in downtown Medford. The forum will kick off with keynote speakers, Small Business Administration Oregon District Director Martin Golden and Commissioner Rick Dyer (Jackson County Board of Commissioners). Participants may choose from thirteen different presentations on virtual reality, business management, business financing, public contracting, and various marketing topics.
