January News & Events

Here are some exciting changes for 2016: 
  • Sleek new newsletter
  • FREE monthly Lunch & Learn
  • An evening Professional Workshop every month
  • More professional development seminars, including Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and a Supervisory Series
Year 2015 was an exciting one for OzSBI. We completed the renovation of 3 new offices in our warehouse space and filled them all. We held our first business pitch competition, re-capitalized our microloan program with $113,000 and started an outreach program to small manufacturers located in our 7 counties. Over the past year, we have mentored businesses large and small and applaud their perseverance, jobs created and contribution to our local economy. We look forward to serving more businesses in 2016!
