ChiBizHub Conversations: Empowering Chicago Small Businesses


ChiBizHub Convenes Small Business Experts & Entrepreneurs for Bi-Weekly Panel Discussions


At the end of March, when the economic implications of the COVID-19 pandemic first began to threaten Chicago’s small business community, ChiBizHub launched a COVID-19 Resources Page that provides daily, and sometimes hourly, updated resources, support, and information to help small and medium sized businesses.

Earlier this month, ChiBizHub launched a new offering, ChiBizHub Conversations, where a virtual panel of Chicago area small and medium-sized business owners and entrepreneurs are brought together to discuss relevant business challenges and opportunities.
