2019 small business expo

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 | Free to the Public

Last year we kicked off small business week with our walk of fame Hollywood themed event.
This year get ready to fly “Around the World” on April 30, 2019!

Texas Tech University will host a Small Business Expo from 8 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center, located at 17th and University Avenue. The expo provides business owners with a forum for building strategic partnerships through a mutual exchange of information with government agencies and business representatives.

We encourage small business owners potential business owners and entrepreneurs, local, state and federal government agents and anyone who has an interest in small business to attend. We believe attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to build strategic business partnerships. The expo also provides a great opportunity to build a relationship with potential clients and partners.

Admittance and parking to the public is free for this event. Door prizes will also be awarded. For more information, please email us at sbexpo@ttu.edu or call us at (806) 742-3844.
