Small Biz Entrepreneurship: How to do it Smart (presented by State Farm)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Know the risks and how to protect you, your business and ideas. From replacing a lost or stolen laptop with all your contents to driving several miles for a gig, or losing internet connectivity because of a major weather incident. Have you sent a “cease and desist” letter for the unauthorized use of your content or materials or received one? Conducting business as a blogger or social media guru has its risks. But you don’t have to face those risks alone or be unprepared.


The panel’s goal is to educate you on how to detect, be prepared and face the risks affecting the small business entrepreneurs; and to find out where to turn for help and protection. Insurance is just a part of the conversation. The panel will highlight the exposure, possible outcomes and preventive measures to have in place when starting or conducting your business.  The conversation will include perspectives from experts and business owners like you!
