Entrepreneurial spirit and forward-thinking leaders have shaped Chandler into a community of innovation. As a small business owner who built a company from the ground up, I have experienced the benefit of City-funded resources and am dedicated to developing new ways to support others looking to grow in Chandler.

Mentorship and training are essential to being successful when starting a business, which is why I supported a budget amendment to enhance the Chandler Innovations Startup Connection event. Startup Connection is free to attend and provides future founders and executives of new companies the opportunity to be mentored and learn from some of Arizona’s most successful entrepreneurs. The event is a great opportunity for those looking to start or grow their business in Chandler to find support, resources and training.

Small businesses are vital to the successful makeup of communities, and I look forward to seeing Chandler’s next big thing.
