Are you a business owner or manager and identify as one of the following? BIPOC, AAPI, LGBT+, Female, Differently Abled. Are you seeking networking, peer-support, and business resources? Join the Salinas Chamber’s new Affinity Group. Our next meeting will be on Thursday, August 26th from 4-5pm on Zoom. There will be a presentation from El Pajaro Community Development Corporation about special programs and support they offer minority-run businesses. El Pájaro Community Development Corporation’s mission is to promote equal access to economic opportunity and to transform people’s lives through entrepreneurship. To fulfill this important mission, El Pájaro CDC helps entrepreneurs by taking the confusion, guesswork and complexity out of starting their own small businesses. Whether you own a new business, are hoping to learn new skills to grow your business, want to create a business plan, expand your business's digital presence, reach new customers, or apply for business loans or seek investors, they offer business consulting and coaching to entrepreneurs. Afterwards, there will be a chance to introduce yourself and get to know the other members of the group.
