Veteran Owned Small Business Executive Roundtable
Beginning July 18, 2013, The University of Mary Washington Center for Economic Development will be hosting the Veteran Owned Small Business Executive Roundtable at our offices located in the Executive Offices at Eagle Village.
Business owners tend to share common challenges. A peer advisory group engages business owners with like interest for purposes of learning new approaches and solutions to business problems and challenges. The Edward Lowe Foundation reports that business owners tend to learn more and process faster the information that they exchange with others. A peer advisory group serves as your informal board of directors who listen, advise, and validate your experiences. Joining a peer advisory group widens your circle of contacts across diverse backgrounds and industries. Teaming alliances may be forged with other members. Peer advisors respect all aspects of each member’s confidential privilege. Members of entrepreneurial peer advisory groups can develop strategic alliances and promote strategies for growing their businesses.
