Dell is a huge proponent of small businesses. From our early days in Michael Dell’s dorm room, small business and entrepreneurship have been part of who we are.

This year, we are venturing to Brooklyn, NY for a two-day EXTRAVAGANZA for small businesses.

Can’t make it to NY? We will be livestreaming via www.youtube/dell and the Dell for Business Facebook page.

The two-day event will feature games, products, giveaways, speakers, educational sessions, and more.

Dell’s small business partners including Microsoft, McAfee, Intuit Quickbooks, Salesforce, Bumble Bizz, Cosmopolitan Magazine, and more will be taking part in programming to provide valuable insights for attendees and livestream viewers.

RSVP Dell Small Business Celebration, May 4 and 5, 2018 Talks will range from funding options for small businesses to data security, productivity, and so much more! We will have experts, speakers, influencers, and local business owners on hand to talk about their business journey.

Rob Walsh from 1010 Wins and “The Bottom Line for Small Business” podcast will join Dell to kick off our evening reception on Friday, May 4. The reception will include a happy hour with six contestants from the hit-show Shark Tank.

On Saturday (May 5) join us early to meet with Bumble Bizz and see how this dating app is facilitating business connections in the digital age.

We will close our Saturday evening (4-6 pm) with a Small Business Cinco de Mayo Party like no other!
