Our 3-Phase Small Business Program will help small businesses strengthen and grow!
UPDATE (12-1-21): We have announced 13 scholarship recipients for Phase 1 and we are currently planning Phase 2 and Phase 3.
Phase 1 – “Strengthen My Business” Scholarship (Application Submission Closed)
The Palm Coast-Flagler Regional Chamber, in collaboration with CareerSource Flagler/Volusia, have secured grant funding for 10 scholarships to help local business leaders strengthen and grow their business. These business leaders will work with consultants at the Coastal Entrepreneur and Innovation Institute to improve their business.
Phase 3 – Small Business Saturday Expo (2022)
We will host a Small Business Saturday Expo in 2022 at Palm Coast’s Central Park. You show up prepared to showcase your small business, we bring the public to the park.
The best part? No cost for small businesses, thanks to CareerSource Flagler/Volusia!
Phase 2 – Small Business Bootcamp
The Chamber will host a monthly “Small Business Bootcamp” session each month at Daytona State College’s Palm Coast Campus. These sessions will help educate local business leaders on best practices and the latest business trends.
All Small Business Bootcamp sessions are free thanks to grant-funding from CareerSource.
Hungry for more? We need small business leaders to help us plot our next initiative. Volunteer to serve on our Small Business Council!
