Whether your company is in its beginning stages, is looking to expand to a larger market, or is somewhere in between, the programming and services that Switchboard connects you with will help you find success in your venture.
If you are looking for events, information, professional services, mentorship & coaching or maybe you need help with marketing, design, research & development, talent acquisition and more – we can connect you with the right people.
Switchboard is here to make it easy for companies and individuals to find the right resource providers and improve areas of their organization that have been identified as a challenge.
For entrepreneurs and small businesses, Switchboard acts as a tool to easily identify and navigate resources that are appropriate for them, wherever they are in their business journey. The platform will also provide a simple outreach method to directly connect with resource providers about the programming they are interested in.
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.
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.
Our resource directory is designed to save you time. We’re gathering all of our partners funding opportunities, services, events and workshops and aligning them with your Business Stage
