Posted at 2:35 PM, Aug 16, 2018

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today announced an upcoming Governor’s Small Business Workshop in Port Aransas.

The workshop is scheduled to be held at the Port Aransas Civic Center at 710 West Avenue A on August 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

According to the governor’s office, these workshops provide an opportunity for small business resource providers, such as business lenders, business-oriented non-profits, and local, regional, state and federal agencies, to connect and build a regional network to assist small businesses in their communities.

Small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs are invited to receive hands-on assistance from the resource providers and gather the information needed to start and grow their businesses.

“Small business owners truly are the backbone of our economy,” said Governor Abbott. “They are the entrepreneurs, the risk takers, the people with a vision and the work ethic to achieve it. Texas is committed to working alongside entrepreneurs and small business owners to ensure they have the knowledge and tools needed to succeed. Working together we will continue to create more jobs and strengthen our economy.”
