Several hundred entrepreneurs and small business leaders from all over the Commonwealth made their way to Louisville yesterday for the Kentucky Get Your Business online event hosted by Google, in partnership with the Kentucky Chamber.
Attendees had the opportunity throughout the day to create a website during a 90-minute workshop, learn to enhance their online presence in various seminars, and work one-on-one with Google staff on specific questions and issues.
Businesses from Whitesville to Bowling Green and Lexington to Louisville were represented, and people from every industry imaginable were in attendance: chefs, authors, personal trainers, real estate agents, business consultants, artists, nonprofit leaders and many more.
The initiative is dedicated to helping drive economic growth by providing Kentucky local businesses the tools and resources to get online and succeed, and it will continue at least throughout the next 12 months. Small business owners may visit Kentucky Get Online to access this offer and receive:
- Free, easy-to-build, professional website
