Chicago, IL. ---- Congressman Bobby L. Rush of The First Congressional District is prepared to give aspiring entrepreneurs the tools they need to get their businesses off the ground when he hosts District Business Week October 4-8 at various city and South Suburban locations.

This week-long event, which includes hosting partners, Village of Midlothian Mayor Thomas J. Murawski, The Northern Trust Bank & Company and Kennedy-King College, will feature workshops that cover the business certification process, securing business loans, how to grow your business as well as a procurement/employment opportunity fair where representatives will be on hand to discuss upcoming contracting and employment opportunities. 

Entrepreneurship is the future of job creation in our communities and a major contributor to personal satisfaction, said Rush.  Many people have ideas for new products or services but often get discouraged with the process.  Our hope is that District Business Week will provide individuals with the right resources to make their dreams of starting businesses a reality.
