Alaska SBDC Presents at America’s SBDC National Conference

September 12, 2023

This year, a small team from Alaska SBDC attended the 44th annual America’s SBDC National Conference – and had the honor of presenting on this year’s hottest topic.

America’s SBDC (of which the Alaska SBDC is an accredited member) facilitates this annual conference, as a professional development opportunity to attendees from SBDCs worldwide. The conference helps them grow as advisors, to in turn help grow the thousands of small businesses they work with every year.

The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center was buzzing with business development experts, advisors, and SBDC leaders from across the nation. Exciting connections, valuable insights, and innovative ideas were flowing!

The Alaska SBDC’s Ian Grant, Rural Center Director and Carlos Machuca, Anchorage Center Director, presented “Boosting Small Business Success with AI” to a packed room of attendees interested in the use of artificial intelligence in support of small businesses and entrepreneurs.

The future is exciting!
