We are excited to announce that Skynet Solutions is partnering with SCORE to collectively collaborate with local and state sponsors to offer Tulsa area small business and prospective small business owners an unprecedented networking and learning opportunity. As a part of National Small Business Week, SCORE and Skynet Solutions are putting on the SCORE Small Business Summit Tulsa 2016! This action packed small business summit will be an opportunity for small business owners and prospective small business owners from around the Tulsa area to network with and hear presentations from influential local business leaders and get personalized business consulting in any area of their business that needs improvement, from marketing and bookkeeping to taxes and incorporation. This will be an all-day event on Tuesday, May 3, with dozens of sessions from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is going to be held in downtown Tulsa at 36 Degrees North. This is shaping up to be the biggest event ever held at 36 Degrees North, Tulsa’s basecamp for entrepreneurs, and was created by small business owners, specifically for small business owners to tell them exactly what they need to know to be as successful as possible. The event is structured in a way that makes it easy for working people to make it to many of the events without having to disrupt their workday. Whether you are a longtime small business owner or are just now looking to start the business you’ve always been dreaming about, there’s something of value and interest at this summit for everyone. You’ll have the opportunity to talk directly with the people you need to talk with to secure a business loan, get tax advice, start a non-profit, figure out how to structure your business and more!
