WARWICK – An expo on funding, legal issues, copyrights and other topics affecting small business will be held April 23 at the Providence Marriott. The expo, “A Beacon for Small Business,” is sponsored by The Beacon Mutual Insurance Company.
“For most of Rhode Island, if you’re a business, you’re a small business, with specific pressures and needs,” James Rosati, president and CEO of The Beacon Mutual Insurance Company, said in a statement.
“Beacon Mutual wanted to organize a forum where, in one day, in one place, we could afford hundreds of local businesses access to resources and information they need to grow and survive in a tough economy,” added Rosati.
The U.S. Small Business Administration and other exhibitors will participate in the expo, which is free and open to the public.
The expo will be held from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Registration is by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 401-825-2731. Deadline to register is April 16.
