Purchasing Shares at Microenterprise Expo

Lehigh University Purchasing Services took part in the fourth annual Lehigh Valley Microenterprise Expo on March 28, 2012. The Expo is created and managed by the Community Development Corporation of Bethlehem, the Small Business Development Center and Lehigh University. Each participant is given space to set up information materials as the event is designed for small business owners to network, build community and gain exposure to potential customers and partners.

This year’s Expo took place at Lehigh University’s STEPS building. Attendees at the Microenterprise Expo included Professional Power Solutions (a replacement battery company), Aaron Resources (employment specialists), Rozsa Consulting (strategic planning/change management/business consulting), ServiceMaster (cleaning vendor) and Custom Weatherization (solar, insulation), among others.

“The Microenterprise Expo was a wonderful opportunity to meet small vendors in the Lehigh Valley area,” says Jane Altemose, Manager of Strategic Sourcing with Lehigh’s Purchasing Services. “The networking opportunities were valuable and there were dozens of vendors showcasing their products at the event. I hope this opportunity generates more business for all of the participants.”
