DESOTO, Texas, May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The DeSoto Economic Development Corporation (DEDC) in partnership with the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce, City of DeSoto and Options Real Estate will host Grow DeSoto: Entrepreneur Pitch Day. The event will be held at 320 E. Belt Line Road in DeSoto, Texas from noon – 5:00 pm on Saturday, June 10, 2017. This event seeks to find and engage entrepreneurs interested in locating their small businesses inside of a new small business incubator in the Brookhollow Shopping Center of DeSoto, TX. The incubator is a 26,000 SF retail building which is being re-purposed to house a variety of restaurants, retail spaces, and a shared workspace. The incubator boasts an open-air, mall environment that will attract a consistent flow of foot traffic for the businesses located inside. These businesses will also enjoy reduced rental rates starting as low as $400 per month (including all bills), easy access to I-35 and I-20, and ongoing business training.

NEW CHAMBER MEMBERS

We are proud to announce that the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce has recently established a scholarship in the amount of $1,000. The student applicant must work for a Chamber member business – OR -- his/her parent/guardian must work for a Chamber member business.

To verify the membership status, check our member database online: http://desotochamber.chambermaster.com/list
 
The mission of the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce is “…to expand, nurture and promote the business community by providing quality service, educational opportunities, establishing partnerships and advocating for businesses to build a stronger community.” We feel that a scholarship helps us to achieve two (or more!) of those goals – PLUS we welcome the opportunity to support the students and parents who work for our member businesses.

We realize that we’ve had this idea at the “last minute” so we’ve set a quick deadline of May 19. Next year, we will have an online form, but this year, all applicants need to complete the attached paper application . Once completed, it can be mailed, emailed or faxed to the Chamber.
