Small businesses and entrepreneurs in Cape May County will have an official new bizHub to use as a resource. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony is set to take place at 12:30 p.m. Sept. 6 at Atlantic Cape Community College‘s Cape May County Campus.
U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-2nd Dist.) will be on hand to offer remarks to the community, who are all invited to attend and learn more about the new small business support center. The bizHub was developed to address the unique needs of Cape May County residents and others interested in exploring opportunities in a pro-business community offering a great quality of life.
Services and resources provided by the bizHub include:
- Public and private meeting spaces;
- Open and private office desks;
- Access to phones, printers and Wi-Fi;
- Research and media resources;
- Business-focused library; and
- One-on-one business coaching and consultations.
“The bizHub is a valuable resource for Cape May County community members of all ages,” Director Christopher Stenger stated. “By leveraging our deep understanding of the area’s business climate and population — for example, its seasonality and employment limitations — we’re able to curate specialized programs and networking opportunities that address these challenges directly and create real opportunities for long-term entrepreneurial success.”
The CMC bizHub is made possible by Atlantic Cape Community College, with the support of a grant from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Business Development Program, and startup funding from the Cape May County board of commissioners and Crest Savings Bank.
Anyone is welcome to use the free and low-cost services offered by Cape May County bizHub, which supports established business owners and people interested in growing their skillset or starting a new business in the community, with special outreach to women-, minority- and veteran-owned businesses.
Located on Atlantic Cape’s Cape May Court House campus, the bizHub’s conveniently located office will be available to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Monday through Friday.
Attendance at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is by RSVP only. To be added to the guest list, please email email@example.com.
