The Power of a Dollar 

So how powerful is a dollar? On average, for every dollar you spend at a small business, sixty-seven cents stays in the local community. Forty-four cents goes to the small business owner and employees, and twenty-three cents gets re-invested in other local businesses.

Entrepreneur 2 Entrepreneur (E2E) 2019

Since 2016, as part of the CREATE Opportunity Initiative and in conjunction with National Entrepreneurship Week in February, the City of Bluefield’s Community and Economic Development Department (CED) hosted the successful “Meet the Millennials”.

The event was created as a networking opportunity and to pass on lessons learned by existing successful business owners to the next generation of entrepreneurs. The CED re-branded “Meet the Millennials” to “Entrepreneur to Entrepreneur” or “E2E”.
