ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Dozens of local business operators got the chance learn ways on how to get their names out there.
The Governor's Marketplace Roadshow made a stop in Roseburg on Thursday.
More than 30 small businesses registered to take part.
In the morning, different agencies presented to participants, and later held interactive workshops.
Officials say the event was a way for small business owners to create relationships and find opportunities available for their company. Cheryl Myers, the director of economic and business equity for the Governor, told KPIC News that government can actually help local business. "Private sector needs to take the lead, but government can certainly help prepare the way and create an environment that is supportive," she said. "Small businesses, for the last couple of decades, both locally and nationally, have been the drivers of jobs."
