West End Business Association Minutes October 2018
WESTIVAL: The WESTIVAL was another tremendous neighborhood success! We’d love to hear more about your experience and opinions on the event to make next year even better.
Fill out our survey here and please copy and share with your network on social media.
We have tons of tees left over. Get your hands on this limited-edition item now! $10 each or two for $15. Rep the West End and this amazing event!
Rocket Fuel Only did an amazing job with the tees this year and the design is super-cool.
FORMAL ORGANIZATION: We were limited in our ability to sell tees to an extent because we can’t currently accept credit cards. It’s possible to get a tax ID number as a volunteer organization to be able to take credit cards next year and open a bank account. Monique and Keith are going to work with SIS on bringing this to fruition.
SPECIAL GUEST: Warren Daniel is the former owner of the Bagelry and currently Seacoast Regional Director of the New Hampshire Small Business Development Center. SBDC is an extention of the Peter T. Paul Center of the University of New Hampshire. It is funded both privately and by the federal Small Business Association.
The NH SBDC offers more than just a place to access capital. They offer a myriad of services from starting, growing, or developing your business. Their staff work as an objective sounding board in making big picture decisions and future planning.
In February, the NH SBDC will have a new publication of current trends in small business including top trends of:
