In recent years, we've seen tragedy after tragedy .... disaster after disaster .... and businesses that are interrupted or completely demolished or caught off-guard by circumstances that the owners thought were beyond their control. But were they? Just about any crisis you can think of can be headed off or lessened if you know how to prepare in advance. You need to be prepared to try to avoid closure, even temporarily. 

"According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), 
  • almost 40 percent of small businesses never re-open their doors after a (natural or fire) disaster, and for those that do, only 29% were still operating after two years." 
  • 60% of small to medium-sized businesses suffering a significant cyber attack never recover and go out of business within 6 months. 
  • One in three small business owners are sued even if they haven't made a mistake, and end up spending a large portion of their capital combating lawsuits.

DO YOU WANT TO RISK YOUR BUSINESS' FATE WHEN YOU CAN FIND OUT HOW TO BE PREPARED?
We have designed a full-day conference featuring experts who will give information on prevention for the most common and serious types of crises to befall small businesses.  Read more and register for this March 29th event at this link:

This B2B event is an opportunity for automotive-related OEM and Tier 1 companies to connect with potential Direct and Indirect suppliers for an afternoon of speed-dating. Please complete the requested information. Pre-registered companies will be reviewed to ensure a good cross-section of supplier representation, including a general South Carolina focus.

This list will also be given to all OEM/Tier 1 companies for their review. They will have first opportunity to select potential suppliers with whom they would like to meet. The remaining time slots will then be opened on a first come, first served basis. All pre-registered companies will be notified of their approval status. Those approved will be provided further instruction on how and when to register online for actual time slots.
