Growing small businesses in Delaware continues to be a top priority for the state.


On Tuesday, a wide range of entrepreneurs and small business owners came together in Wilmington at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. The Delaware Economic Development Office hosted the program known to many as the Governor's Entrepreneurial & Small Business Conference.

"Delaware is constantly on the lookout for innovative ways to move forward, especially when it comes to bringing in new businesses on the cutting edge of technology and growing and educating our workforce," said Gov. Jack Markell.

According to organizers the conference is designed to help small businesses network, share ideas and most importantly gain access to resources needed to accelerate business growth.
