Open for business

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

The Austin Community College, the Austin Independent School District, Travis County and the city all want to work with the owners of small, minority and women-owned businesses. The Central Texas Small Business Partnership Conference next Wednesday, May 24, is a chance for those business owners to get to know the ins and outs of working with each of the entities. It takes place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Austin Community College Highland Campus at 6101 Airport Blvd., and will feature panels and “breakout sessions” in four categories: “construction, professional and consulting services, commodities, and technologies.” There will also be purchasing agents, buyers and “prime contractors from local government and state agencies,” on hand to answer questions.
