COSE offers various signature events throughout out the year to enhance the opportunities and knowledge of small businesses in Northeast Ohio. Our Signature Events include:

Small Business Resource Fair

Join us for a day focused on helping your small business access the resources, support and opportunities you need to grow. Hosted by the Business Growth Collaborative—a network of 11 entrepreneurial support organizations in Northeast Ohio—the day is structured to allow business owners and their teams gain access to the specific tools that best match their unique needs at no cost to the small business. Each attendee's plan for the day specifically addresses their most pressing challenges and focuses on creating connections to the people, training and resources that will help their business grow.
