Hey CLE friends…happy new week to you! This week is gonna be amazing I just know it. From the amazing fall weather and pre-Halloween festivities to the excitement in the air for this years, tenth annual Small Business Convention presented by COSE.
As a small business owner I have been a member of COSE: the council of smaller enterprises for over ten years. COSE really has been such a great resource for our studio, everything from continuing ed, to providing larger buying power, to insurance needs and government representation…when it comes to making laws that will affect small business COSE is where it’s at! With all of that said, one of my favorite events that COSE brings to our community is the annual Small Business Convention…it truly IS the premier event for entrepreneurs and fellow small business owners in Northeast Ohio.
This years convention kicks off on Wednesday the 21st with a welcome and keynote by the successful business duo; the team that founded Rent the Runway, Jennifer Hyman and Jenny Fleiss. Personally I am psyched to hear about their journey in business and hear about the behind the scenes of what it is like to run and grow such a national fashion phenom. Come on, we Cleveland ladies LOVE us some Rent the Runway!
In addition to the opening keynote there are many other great speakers, informative workshops and lectures to attend and lots networking opportunities. I can’t forget to mention the exhibit hall where many small businesses and vendors will be there showcasing, make time to swing by and visit with them.
So with all of that said, I want to invite you, other CLE small business owners to join me at this weeks COSE Small Biz Convention. Tickets are still available and you can register here! I am so excited to see how this years convention unfolds…hope you can make it!
I was invited to to attend this years conference in exchange for social outreach as part of COSE Small Business Convention relations efforts. Thanks for supporting this organization that allow me to create special content like this for iheartcleveland!
