Last night I attended the Green Biz Alliance meeting at Mountain BizWorks here in Asheville. This is a nonprofit that supports new businesses and offers ongoing help for small businesses.
There were all kinds of interesting green businesses represented: cleaning services, wind spirals (a kind of turbine), various products. There were also people there just interested in seeing what others were doing.
An interactive presentation was made on the various networking opportunities in this area for people in green businesses as well as the services of Mountain BizWorks.
There are a number of great opportunities like this in the Asheville area. Another event coming up is Warren Wilson College’s third annual Mountain Green later this month, June 24th. There will be a full day of workshops, speakers and tents of venders. If you have an opportunity to attend this, you won’t be disappointed. Maybe I’ll see you there!
