For the Resource Providers.

For resource providers, Switchboard facilitates a simple connection to entrepreneurs. Input from entrepreneurs and small business owners give these resource providers important insights into what the business community needs and what programming they should be developing into the future.

Different People Together - Community Icon

For the Community.

Switchboard gives the entire community better visibility of what is happening. By acting independently and only focusing on “collecting and connecting” our community resources, Switchboard aims to build an inclusive business ecosystem that revolves around a “give-before-you-get” mentality.
