From Betsy Fredericks
Associate Director, Midland College Business and Economic Development Center (BEDC)
The Midland College Business and Economic Development Center (BEDC) began hosting monthly Networking breakfasts in 1991 to offer owners of small businesses and minority owned businesses the chance to network with other business owners to exchange information and learn of business opportunities.
The breakfasts are now co-sponsored by the Midland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the UTPB SBDC.
The program format includes special guests from government agencies, civic organizations, and local businesses. The breakfasts are the third Tuesday of each month in the Carrasco Room in the Scharbauer Student Center at Midland College. All attendees are given the opportunity to give a short infomercial about their business. There is a $5 charge for the breakfast
