Whole Foods, CIC Host Business Networking

June 23, 2013

Small businesses took center stage at Whole Foods Saturday with the help of a local business group.

Several local businesses, including a taxi service, a homemade tomato sauce canner and a house painter, set up shop outside the Whole Foods on Hydraulic Road. They're all working with the Community Investment Collaborative.

The CIC helps local small businesses and startups with business training and micro-loans.

"Existing entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs come together and build something even greater," said Hebah Fisher, the CIC's cofounder. "It's fantastic because daily we are actively creating the kind of community in which we want to live."

Coming out to Whole Foods not only helps them get noticed by customers but helps them network with other small businesses.
