Great Turn-out at SBRN Round Table Event!

Approximately 80 people gathered around the Small Business Resource Network’s Fall Round Table event, held at the Holiday Inn in Ft. Myers. All particpants were heavily engaged in conversations with the consultant network  of  SBRN members, small business owners working with the SBDC, and new business owners from Cape Coral and Ft. Myers.  A big thanks to Amanda Stirn for spearheading the organizational team. 

 The event was hosted by members of the Southwest Florida Small Business Resource Network, and through direct support from the Southwest Florida Small Business Development Center. SBRN members were available at that time to provide participants with information about the most prevalent topics small business owners need to discuss. Experts in accounting, business consulting, legal, insurance, and banking/lending were on hand to offer advice and information. The Small Business Resource Network, or SBRN, is a statewide organization that provides a reliable connection between seasoned professionals, who service the small business arena and the small business owner. For more information on the resource network, visit, or contact  Lorna Kibbey, SBRN coordinator, at (239)745-3700. Florida Gulf Coast University’s Small Business Development Center sponsors the local Southwest Florida SBRN Chapter. Organized by: Amanda Stirn, Stirn and Associates, LLC.
