Verizon is proud to once again sponsor the second annual Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Week, May 12 –16. We have a number of activities lined up for small business owners in the Philadelphia-metro area so please join us.


Today, join our social media contest to help kick off the week. Just follow both @PhillyChamber and @VZSmallBiz, then tweet out to us and tell us something cool or fun about one of your favorite regional small businesses and use the hashtag #PhillySmallBizWk to be automatically entered. All tweets must be posted by 4 p.m. ET today, May 12, for your chance to win an UP by Jawbone fitness tracker.


Mark your calendar to network with us and other small business owners in the area this Wednesday at the Wyndham Philadelphia Historic District starting at 5:30 p.m. Click here to register or go to http://vz.to/1uUiBwL.
