Local business leaders hold 2nd investment forum
(2007-03-19)
(WOUB) - Think of it as a meet-and-greet for those with money and those who need it.

The Athens Area Chamber of Commerce held it's second Southeast Ohio Investment Forum last week, gathering area investors together with local small business-owners trying to get off the ground.

Jennifer Simon, CEO of the Athens Chamber, says the forum is a training ground for small business-owners to hone their skills at attracting investors.

"We are pulling public investors and private investors to the table," said Simon. "They recognize they have to be more patient on receiving that return on investment."

The first Southeast Ohio Investment Forum was held in January.
