The Jackson County Small Business Incubator’s Entrepreneurial Panel Discussion is on Thursday, September 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.  Attendees can bring their lunch, and register to attend for free by contacting Linda Johnson at 228-762-3391 or Janice Mabry at 228-875-3227.  At this seminar, attendees will hear from local entrepreneurs who will share their experiences about starting and running a small business enterprise in Jackson County.  Attendees can be prospective or current small business owners, a person interested in the small business community and either a member or non-member of the Chamber.  These owners of business will share stories of their start-ups and lessons they have learned along the way.  This is a great opportunity to get information from those who are making it work in our community.

 

On October 19th the other program with the Jackson County Small Business Incubator will be “Developing Your Own Cyber Security Plan.”  This will also be from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.  Attendees can bring their lunch, and register to attend for free by contacting Linda Johnson at 228-762-3391 or Janice Mabry at 228-875-3227.  Many news stories hit the airways about cyber-attacks where businesses are shut down, and their information is stolen.  This seminar will discuss how to prepare against such attacks.  In today’s environment, it is information that enables business owners to conduct business. It is too risky to not take basic precautions to protect information. If businesses have a business that contracts with the government, a cyber security plan is needed. This program will guide attendees in the establishment of a cyber security plan for you and for your business.

 

The Chamber is here to support community and business development within Jackson County.  Opportunities such as this are available exclusively to members of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.  Small businesses make up nearly 85 percent of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce membership. The Chamber is always here to support community and small business development within Jackson County.
