Oakland and Alameda County are home to an abundance of organizations and agencies offering free or very affordable services to small businesses, from free websites, 0% interest loans, business bootcamps, digital marketing workshops, networking opportunities and more. But making sense of which organizations’ services can best help your business can be overwhelming and time consuming. Attend the Oakland Chamber’s one-stop Small Business Resources Fair to meet and talk with a variety of business service organizations, such as Main Street Launch, TMC Community Capital, Hack the Hood, Kiva, Working Solutions, Pacific Community Ventures, Alliance for Community Development and more. Plus, sign up ahead of time for an appointment with the City of Oakland Economic Development Staff for one-on-one consultation in their mobile Small Business Assistance Center pop-up during the Fair.
