Small Business Week 2020 Call for Presenters
We are seeking to partner with our business service provider organizations to plan, market and deliver workshops in Oakland’s various commercial districts. Oakland is fortunate to have a multitude of organizations that collectively offer an array of resources to our community. We look forward to taking advantage of this ecosystem to offer a well-rounded slate of activities.

This year, we anticipate selecting up to six partners to sponsor their 2020 Small Business Week activities and workshops. We strongly encourage collaborative proposals where organizations partner together.

The deadline to submit workshop proposals is Friday, February 14.

If you would like to submit a proposal, please use the online submission form.

If you have questions about the Call for Presenters, please contact Juno Thomas, Small Business Week Coordinator, at jcthomas@oaklandca.gov or (510) 238-4727.
