Earlier this week, Facebook traveled across the country to visit Charm City! At the three-day event at the Lord Baltimore Hotel, Facebook was providing workshops and trainings for small businesses, freelancers, and more. It’s clear that Baltimore is excited for more digital training and knowledge - the three floors and tech-help bars were packed! Baltimore is one of 50 cities where Facebook is offering this event.
Our own Alison Schuch represented BeachFit Baltimore on one of the panels. The knowledgeable small business panel shared some key insights into the cool things happening in our city, with our local businesses and how others could learn from their experiences.
During the event, the Facebook team confirmed they will continue providing resources through courses at BCCC and a partnership with the Small Business Resource Center. This support will help provide additional resources and training courses at both locations - a leg up for Baltimore and our surrounding areas! You can read even more about Facebook’s plans on Technical.ly Baltimore.
It was also fun to get some skill-building tips from the Facebook & Instagram teams, plus to see so many friendly, learning faces!
Keep learning & keep investing in yourselves, Baltimore!
