Norfolk's Business Cafés provide new and existing businesses with the information, guidance, and resources needed to move forward and achieve success. They offer financial, marketing, management and technical assistance to new and existing small businesses. Services are offered at no charge to Norfolk residents interested in starting a new business or expanding an existing firm. Business Cafés are held in Ocean View, Park Place, Southside, and Huntersville.
A Military Biz Cafe, held December 7, highlighted the small business resources available to the military community. This included identifying skills obtained through military service that translates into profitable businesses.
