Entrepreneurship Event with Rep. John Delaney

Congressman John Delaney Discusses Opportunities for Local Entrepreneurs (PHOTOS)

Over 250 local business owners and entrepreneurs attended a workshop hosted by Congressman John Delaney on Monday night at the Universities of Shady Grove in Rockville.

Congressman Delaney said, “This event is about entrepreneurship, it’s about making sure that small business owners understand all the resources available to them to help them succeed in either starting their business or growing their business.”

The workshop featured U.S. Small Business Association (SBA) Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet, as well as state and local panel participants. Congressman Delaney moderated a Q&A session shortly after his remarks.

Germantown business owner Tina Patterson said, “I came out here today because I thought this was an excellent opportunity as a small business owner to learn more about how I can grow my business as well as find out more about what support systems are available. Whether that’s through the SBA or whether that’s through local entities such as the Montgomery County procurement office.”
