The Office of Advocacy, an independent office within the U.S. Small Business Administration, is holding a roundtable event 'Access and Use of Digital Tools for Small Businesses' to hear from small businesses and advocates about their views on access to and use of digital tools. The use of digital tools is a key enabler for small businesses to innovate, grow and compete. 

The purpose of the listening sessions is to develop recommendations for U.S. and EU policymakers through the Trade and Technology Council (TTC) that will help accelerate small businesses access to and the uptake of digital technologies.

SCORE Client Spotlight! Wild Orchid Bakery - From Trinidad to Manchester

Owner Shelly-Anne is a native of Trinidad, The name Wild Orchid Bakery comes from her wanting to unite her two homes, Trinidad & New Hampshire. According to Shelly-Anne, "What they both have in common are the beautiful terrains, mountains, and wildflowers that everyone can appreciate. I also do have a bit of a wild side, so I snuck that in as well! This is a new venture for me and I hope you join me along for the ride as I create baked-from-scratch recipes and unique island-style pastries. I make everything with a dash of passion, a teaspoon of spice, and a cup of art to every order."
