HARRISBURG – Rep. Aaron Kaufer (R-Luzerne) is teaming up with the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance, the Northeastern Pennsylvania Industrial Resource Center, Wilkes University Small Business Development Center and the Wilkes-Barre Connect to host the Business Finance and Incentives Program – Opportunities to Grow Your Business event.

This free event will be held at the Friedman Jewish Community Center, 613 S J Strauss Lane, Kingston on Thursday, June 6. It will begin at 8 a.m. with breakfast and networking, followed by presentations, and a question-and-answer period.

“Area business owners who attend this event will be provided with an overview of federal, state, regional and county incentives and financing programs,” Kaufer said. “Experts will also discuss how business owners can engage technical service providers and consultants to improve and expand their businesses.”

Participants will also learn about various economic development agencies and the services they provide. The two-hour program will include a panel discussion with local experts, a question-and-answer session and time for networking and one-on-one consultation for confidential inquires.

“This event is a great opportunity for business owners to gain a lot of knowledge from various organizations,” Kaufer said. “By bringing them all under one roof, we are making it easier for business owners to receive assistance that is aimed at helping them be even more successful.”

Registration is required. To reserve a spot, call 570-283-1001.
