Building Communities: 2019 Construction Mixer

May 1, 2019 //

On April 25, small business owners, real estate professionals, city officials, and members of the community convened for the “Building Communities: 2019 Construction Mixer.” This joint event between Temple Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and The Enterprise Center (TEC) celebrated 31 years of the SBDC Construction Management Certificate, a 9 month program, and three years of TEC’s Construction Consortium.

The crowd of over 100 attendees heard from TEC’s Della Clark, Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, and Harold Epps from the Commerce Department. Sponsors of the event included The How Group, Montage Diversity, Ideal Electrical Supply and leading sponsor Target Building Construction. Guests enjoyed bites from local business, Affinity Confections, while making new connections.

TEC and the SBDC encourage all attendees to continue to keep in touch with our programs.
