YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The City of Youngstown is looking to help local businesses around town. It’s starting a new event on Wednesday.

Wednesday will be Youngstown’s first Business Solutions Summit. The city’s Community Planning and Economic Development Department is hosting it.

Local businesses, banks and city partners are presenting information to each other. This Summit aims to reach a few goals.

The main goal is to provide insight on developing relationships with city government. The Summit will also discuss available resources in the city for small businesses. City administration and city council will also be there.

The Business Solutions Summit will be at Ohev Beth Shalom in Youngstown. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. Opening remarks from Mayor Tito Brown begin at 9 a.m.

Nikki Posterli, director of community planning and economic development, was at the event.

“We’re competing by bringing everyone together in one space saying, hey, if you want to do business in the City of Youngstown, here are all your resources in one space,” Posterli said. “We all work together. We’re all a partnership. One city. One voice.”

Posterli says the summit can help the city better understand how to work with its businesses.
