WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWTI) — An upcoming entrepreneur conference will focus on connecting aspiring business owners to current ones in the North Country.

The Center for Business in Transition, partnered with many entities in the region has created a four-day virtual conference focusing on big opportunities in small communities.

The thing that we want folks to know is that they don’t have to do it alone,” shared Adirondack North Country Association Business Transition Program Coordinator Dani Delaini. “Thousands of Adirondack North Country businesses are becoming available for sale as retiring baby boomers, who own a lot of our small businesses are thinking about their next chapter in life.”

She added, “we have been working as this coalition and across the region for about three years to address the retiring business owners and make sure that they have access to free and low cost resources. But as we move into this. This year of the program, we’re moving on to think about aspiring business owners.”

So far, according to Delani, over 150 have registered for the conference. It will feature 12 different session, all ranging in topics to address niche questions for aspiring entrepreneurs during all steps in the business acquisition process.
