The State of LGBT Business

J0433139 Each day, we hear the question asked — when will this economic crisis be over? For some of us, we are seeing optimistic growth for our communities and our businesses. For others, we’re just not sure.

Next week, the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce will host the annual National Business & Leadership Conference: Out for Business in Seattle, WA. The sixth annual conference gathers LGBT business owners, corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, and LGBT chamber members for educational and networking opportunities.  And, as he mentioned on Tuesday, our very own Ben Finzel will be there as well.

“For three days, our GSBA members and chamber members from other states, will meet face to face and have opportunities to make business connections with LGBT colleagues and national corporate leaders from across the country to exchange information, increase business skills and act as ambassadors of our beautiful, progressive city”, said Louise Chernin, Greater Seattle Business Association’s Executive Director, in an Echelon article.

Now is the time to be a sponge, to learn from experts who are succeeding and those who are positioning their companies for growth. Opportunities, like this conference hosted by the NGLCC, provide professionals a platform for growth, personally and for their businesses.
