TSBDC Offers Workshop to Help Businesses Survive the Economic Slump

The Tennessee Small Business Development Center (TSBDC) at Southwest will host a workshop entitled “Business Survival in Tough Economic Times” on April 4, from 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Renaissance Business Center, 555 Beale Street in Memphis, TN.

This information-packed free training event is designed to address a wide range of steps that business owners can take to preserve cash and maintain business operations during the present national economic recession. The workshop will explore and outline many possible measures to off-set reductions in cash flow and the bottom line.

The TSBDC program is a partnership between the State of Tennessee and the U.S. Small Business Administration. Headquartered at Middle Tennessee State University, it has 15 TSBDC service centers located across the state in both rural and urban communities. In addition, business training and counseling are provided at multiple affiliate office locations such as chambers of commerce, banks, and community centers, as well as on the Internet.
