Attend a Cambridge Small Business Open House


Small Business Open House

Beginning in November 2017, CDD staff will host Small Business Open Houses in various commercial districts and neighborhoods throughout the city -- bringing CDD's assistance and resources directly to businesses. Cambridge small business owners and entrepreneurs are encouraged to stop by during the Open House drop-in hours to:

  • Learn about small business resources in Cambridge
  • Apply for small business grants
  • Connect with other business owners
  • Meet with staff from CDD's economic development division

These services are free and open to all. Food and beverages will be provided, and translators can be made available upon request for Open Houses scheduled in 2018.
