Luncheon to cover resources for East Texas businesses

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - Local business owners are invited to a free luncheon Monday to learn about resources available in the area.

The University of Texas at Tyler College of Business & Technology, the Hispanic Business Alliance and the Tyler Economic Development Council are teaming up to offer the first East Texas Entrepreneurship Resource Fair from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday.


Jana Belzer, UT Tyler College of Business & Technology marketing coordinator, said Dr. Harold Doty, College of Business and Technology dean, paid for community members to have a free lunch while listening to directors talk about the college's programs.

Presentations will be given on the Hibbs Institute, the Center for Retail Enterprises, the Texas Center to Advance Productivity & Performance and the new Center for Family & Small Enterprises. They are all part of the College of Business & Technology.

She said the audience also will hear about Tyler Junior College's Tyler Texas Angel Network and UT Tyler's internship program and how they can support community businesses.

The resource fair is targeting local business owners and those interested in their programs. Ms. Belzer is expecting about 65 people to attend, she said on Tuesday.

She said the first-time event came out of an alliance between Doty, Price Arredondo, director of the Hispanic Business Alliance, and Tom Mullins, president and chief executive officer of the Tyler Economic Development Council. She said they hope to make it an annual event, but it depends on the community interest.
