VEDC Chicagoland Business Opportunity Fund has partnered with Travelers to bring you this Small Business Risk Education workshop. Join us, and learn how to better protect your small business.
DID YOU KNOW you could be held liable for the auto accident of an employee? WHAT WOULD YOU DO if your supplier couldn’t deliver an item you use in your end product? COULD YOUR BUSINESS STAY OPEN if there was a natural disaster or if you had major surgery?
