You’re Invited to an Ohio Minority Business Panel hosted by Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose at the University of Dayton-Daniel J. Curran Place

Business Leader,

Thank you for your interest in attending our business panel discussion with Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose.

We are glad you will be attending and are excited to have the opportunity to bring minority business leaders like yourself together for an important reason – to hear your thoughts and ideas about doing business in Ohio. As you probably know, the Office of the Ohio Secretary of State is the front door to new businesses in Ohio and registering with our office is the first step for entrepreneurs. The Secretary looks forward to sharing his plans for expanding business services and resources, and we also want to learn how we can better serve you and support business growth in our state.

What issues are you running into as you start and grow your business? What are your concerns and barriers? What access points need to be improved? Please come ready to share your ideas along with your suggestions to make the process better.

We know you are in the trenches doing important work and we want your ideas on how to improve the system. Bring your concerns, ideas and solutions; we will give each of you time to share. As Secretary LaRose recently laid out,

 My vision is an Ohio with a thriving democracy and a prospering economy for everyone. As the 51st Ohio Secretary of State I will work every day to use the office to bring that vision to life. I plan to bring new ideas to this office and work hard to streamline the services we provide, advocate for entrepreneurs, and ensure that our elections remain secure and accessible.-
