Where Entrepreneurs Grow, Learn and Connect

What We Do

INSPIREsmall.biz is a resource for entrepreneurs to learn the skills they need to build a successful small business.

We have a library of blogs, tutorials, speaker videos and more, on a wide variety of topics to help build a business. We also host in-person and virtual events to help small business owners make more connections to grow their business and learn new skills.

As a member, you’ll get access to events and resources to build your business!

Our Story

INSPIREsmall.biz began as Open In Indiana, with local networking groups and a regional business directory. Through the pandemic, we’ve evolved into an online resource hub for entrepreneurs and small business owners in all 50 states.

In mid-2021, we officially changed the name to INSPIREsmall.biz, to better reflect our mission of helping small businesses get started and succeed.
