Throughout the year, the OED hosts public events focusing on business and housing development, and promotes programs designed for existing and aspiring entrepreneurs. Did you know? Our OED@Commons staff inside the Commons on Champa, 1245 Champa St., offers free advisory hours for small businesses -- both walk-ins and by appointment. Details here. And always check out all business-building events at The Commons here. OED also helps promote such business-building programs hosted by other public and nonprofit entities. Local public and nonprofit business-related events that are low or no cost may be submitted for consideration here.
