The GSBA-backed small business resource and advocacy initiative was set into official motion Tuesday morning with an event at 15th Ave’s Ada’s Technical Books.
“Do you need help with marketing, programming, meeting each other, networking, communicating? What is it you need? Because, we want to be that group for you,” the group’s CEO Louise Chernin said kicking off the initiative Tuesday.
CHS reported in August on the GSBA effort to create a new organization focused on the Capitol Hill business community in the wake of the neighborhood’s chamber of commerce closing down over dwindling finances and eroding support after a failed expansion effort.
The GSBA’s Alliance has hired a new Capitol Hill Business Development Manager and will pick up the torch for efforts like the chamber’s annual State of the Hill ceremony and Spirit of the Hill community awards as well as lead new business education and networking efforts.
CHS is a media sponsor of the new organization.
