Catch the Entrepreneurship Fever during the 2013 Micro-Enterprise Conference.  The Micro-Enterprise Conference is a unique three-day conference that gives small business owners the opportunity to attend informative sessions, networking opportunities, a procurement fair and business resource expo.

Are you a micro-enterprise?
A Micro-enterprise is defined as a business with no more than five employees and start up costs of $35,000 or less.  A micro-enterprise will usually operate with fewer than 10 people and is started with a small amount of capital. In the majority of micro-enterprises  the owner is the sole operator and worker, leading many to refer to this phenomenon as self employment.

Most micro-enterprises specialize in providing goods or services for their local areas.  Fifty four percent of U.S. businesses have one to four employees and 49.2 percent of Ohio businesses fit this mode.
