21st Annual HHS Small Business Program Conference

The 21st Annual HHS Small Business Program Conference helps small businesses learn more about the approximate $1.1 billion dollars of annual HHS funding that is available to forge academic partnerships and build new businesses. This annual conference is the cornerstone of HHS’s Congressionally-mandated outreach efforts for small business.

The Nevada SBDC at UNLV is a statewide resource for business assistance, providing a unique array of services, expertise, and training in all areas including starting, growth, and development of a business. The Nevada SBDC also offers information and guidance in understanding and complying with environmental regulations. In addition, the Nevada SBDC provides useful information and analysis of the economy, environment, and demographic data to help businesses, government, and other organizations promote economic growth in their communities.

This program provides guidance to entrepreneurs who are contemplating the formation of new businesses by offering practical and accessible information that can provide a path through the legal, regulatory, and business landscape.

Additionally, the Nevada SBDC networks with members of a variety of local groups, including Chambers of Commerce, the tech community, and under-represented communities within the urban areas of our community.
