(Houston, Texas) – Small businesses employ the bulk of America’s private sector workforce.  The number of new small businesses has exploded over the past decade but many fail because owners do not have access to the vital tools they need to succeed.

The conference will be held at 3100 Cleburne, Houston, Texas 77004, at the Thurgood Marshall School Of Law on the Campus of Texas Southern University from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Business owners will get crucial information from experts on developing a successful business plan; identifying and securing sources of capital; effective marketing and taking advantage of free resources that will build and sustain their businesses.

There will also be an exciting “shark tank” like business plan competition that features 12 people battling for a share of $19,000 to help start or grow their businesses.
