FREE and OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC, the EXPO’s purpose is to bring knowledge, information and resources to the residents, businesses and not-for-profit entities serving East Harlem. The Alliance’s mission to “Buy from East Harlem, Hire from East Harlem, Serve East Harlem and Promote East Harlem” will be evident in the workshops, speakers, resource material and events of the day. In addition to knowledgeable speakers who can give you critical information for yourself, your business or your organization, we will have loads of information about all that is available right here in your own community. We will also have refreshments and gift bags. Workshops will include marketing strategies for businesses and non-profits, available resources for businesses, Interviewing skills and Resume Preparation and on-site technical assistance for businesses, from the NYC Department of Small Business Services. The EXPO EVENT will be held at the Hunter College/Silberman Campus, located at 2180 Third Avenue (corner of 119th Street), from 9AM – 4PM.
