Arizona Small Business Association, in partnership with the Nogales-Santa Cruz County Chamber of Commerce, is offering its "Entrepreneurial Accelerator" program to Nogales business owners.
The program is free and funded by the USDA Rural Business Opportunity Grant.
On Tuesday, Jan. 31, from 4-6 p.m. there will be a community forum where participants can interact and network to learn from other business owners and resource partners.
