SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Local entrepreneurs from around Central New York set up shop at the Oncenter on Wednesday as part of the 21st annual Small Business Show.
Companies with less than 100 workers took part. It was also the chance for business owners to learn about products, services, and resources to help them grow their companies.
Organizers say that networking with others is also key to helping small businesses get the word out about what they have to offer.
“We think it’s very important. It’s how you build a relationship,” said Steve Becker, promoter and producer of the Small Business Show. “You can have social media, but you know when you text somebody or email or things like that, we feel it’s kind of limited. This way, you shake a hand, facetime. I think is very important.”
Local business owners also shared their success stories to help inspire others just starting out.
