Grant opportunities for HB “brick-and-mortar” start-up businesses 

From Human Resources and lease negotiations, to key performance indicators and utilizing a digital media strategy, launching a business in 2022 is more challenging than ever.   

That is why Orange County’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is offering “Brick-by-Brick: A Retail Startup Program.”  This free online class runs online each Wednesday from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.  Classes run for six weeks from August 10 through September 14.  You can register by clicking here.
