In 2011, President Barack Obama launched StartUp America, a White House initiative targeted to increase entrepreneurship throughout the nation. Since its debut, Memphis government and business leaders have focused and dedicated resources and energy to augment entrepreneurship education and support.
To continue such efforts, the city of Memphis has partnered with the Memphis Office of Resources and Enterprise (MORE) to host the Government Procurement Vendor Fair on March 12th at The Lemoyne-Owen College. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Business owners will have the opportunities to network with local and federal government agencies as well as learn how to obtain resources available to improve their business internally and externally.
