Sparks’ Notes – Savannah Ballard, Downtown Macomb


Savannah Ballard from the City of Macomb Marketing and Downtown Development Office returns to chat about the upcoming Small Business Competition, which returns to Macomb for the first time since 2018.

This competition gives aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to gain insight and resources to help them go from idea to opening their business. It all starts with an informational meeting on February 6th at 6 p.m. at the Spoon River Outreach Center (2500 East Jackson). During this meeting, they’ll be able to ask questions and network with entrepreneurs in the community, before deciding to taking their shot in the 4 weekly workshops that eventually lead up to the Big Business Pitch on March 25th, where 3 winning businesses will receive their share of a prize pool worth over $30,000.

For more information about the Small Business Competition, contact Savannah at [email protected] or call her at (309) 575-3015.
