- Entrepreneurs Conference
HPNG in association with the LMEC
Monday, October 3
Small and medium businesses, measured by those having fewer than 500 employees, are generally the creators of most new jobs, as well as the employers of about half of the nation’s private sector work force, and the providers of a significant share of innovations.
More than 98 percent of all U.S. businesses are considered small and medium businesses and those same companies are responsible for more than 45 percent of all private payrolls and 80 percent of the new jobs created over the past decade. However, entrepreneurs know they have to operate as efficiently as possible if they want to stay in business. But that's not the only challenge. It's also about finding new ways to grow your business, new ways to leverage your marketing efforts and new ways to increase sales.
HPNG in association with the LMEC invites you to its 1st Annual HPNG Entrepreneurs Conference in New York on October 3. The LMEC kicks off the LMEW with a focus on issues faced by entrepreneurs. This full-day event will host sessions that improve the skill sets and operational procedures applied by entrepreneurs and will provide access to information on how they can grow their businesses.
