SBAC’s Premier Small Business Conference is Back!


Join us on October 25th to connect with a community dedicated to helping small businesses start, stay and succeed in Illinois!

The SBAC & MB Financial Bank Small Business Conference features breakfast, open networking, a keynote discussion and the return of the Venture Pitch Session. Click here to register today!

We all know about the challenges small businesses face in Illinois, but this event will provide an opportunity to see the positive forces at work to stimulate economic growth and innovation in our state. Register today for a no-spin conversation with Mark Peterson, the CEO of Intersect Illinois, the lead economic development office for the state.

This event will also feature the Venture Pitch Session highlighting three companies in growth mode, who will compete for over $2000 in cash and prizes – thanks to UPS, MB Financial Bank and WeWork! Learn about top up and coming companies in Chicagoland and hear from our expert panel of judges – and perhaps learn some tips for your own business!
