The American Association of Microbusiness and New Business Minnesota will be co-hosting the Small Business Resource Expo on April 23, 2009 at the Earle Brown Conference Center in Brooklyn Center, MN.

The American Association of Microbusiness ("AAM"), in a joint partnership with New Business Minnesota will host the Small Business Resource Expo in Minneapolis on April 23rd of 2009. The Expo is an opportunity for small business people and entrepreneurs to network with others and learn some tips and tricks designed to increase your business in these troubled economic times.

This small business event is designed specifically for companies looking to launch or grow in the coming year. Many of these startups are "necessity entrepreneurs" resulting from recent layoffs. The Expo is a great way to discover new business solutions and gain timely, accurate information through seminars and panel discussions.

The Expo has been revamped for 2009 in order to effectively provide small businesses with the resources and ideas necessary to not only survive, but to thrive in the current economic environment.

The two panel presentations scheduled are "Show Me The Money," which focuses on how to find the financing small business owners need during these economic times and "Give Me The Business," which focuses on how to creatively (and cost effectively) utilize today's technology to market your business and generate sales. In addition to the presentations, a vendor exhibit featuring over 75 exhibitors will begin at 1:00 pm.

New Business Minnesota will host a Startup Meetup beginning at 5:00 pm. This successful Meetup (over 1,200 members - the largest startup group in the world under the "start up" category on the web site) connects startups and new businesses with resource vendors, idea sharing and advice to overcome hurdles and achieve success.

The event will be held at the Earle Brown Conference Center just off of Interstate 694 at Earle Brown Drive in Brooklyn Center, MN. The Expo begins at 1:00 pm and lasts until the conclusion of the Meetup at 7:00 pm.
