Small business events dot the map this week. From Atlanta, which of course hosts Digital Summit Atlanta to New York, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, events for small business owners and entrepreneurs seem to be happening everywhere. Other events include “Winning the Game of Business — Entrepreneur Night,” several HackerX events aimed at connecting tech talent with some of the most innovative companies, and “BizBash Five,” a South Florida expo.
Where you attend depends greatly on your location and, of course, your personal interests as an entrepreneur. But no matter what, you’ll be looking for the whole small business schedule for this week and beyond to make up your mind.
