(Seguin) -- Do you own a small business in Seguin or look to one day operate your own business? Some of the top advocates for business development in the city of Seguin are partnering together to host the first ever, Real Connections -- Small Business Resource Fair. The free event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the Texas Theatre.

Josh Schneuker, the executive director of the Seguin Economic Development Corporation (SEDC), says the opportunity is open to any current or future small business operation.

"It's brand new. We haven't done anything like this before so we are very excited to come together and provide some of these resources to our small business owners, our entrepreneurs seeking the items as they are either getting their business started or looking to start a business,” said Schneuker.

Schneuker says being a small business owner is no easy task. It takes hard work, commitment and an understanding of the resources available to help people succeed. We are looking forward to highlighting the resources that Seguin and the state of Texas have to offer small business owners."

"There's a lot of resources out there that in our conversations with our existing business owners and prospects that folks are just not really aware of and we wanted to create an event where we could have all those non-profit, free of charge resources that are out there come into Seguin, be able to meet with our small business owners, our entrepreneurs, really explain what they do and then provide that assistance to them. That's kind of how this all started," said Schneuker.

Schneuker says The Real Connections - Small Business Resource Fair will feature over 15 different service providers plus local experts who are ready and willing to share what they know in the world of small business ownership.

"We are also having some panel discussion where we will feature brand new small business owners and more seasoned veterans who will be answering questions and giving insight from their experience -- the resources that they utilize and continue to utilize. So not only are you getting the resources that are going to be in attendance at the fair but you are also going to hear from your small business colleagues within Seguin to see exactly what they are doing to survive and thrive," said Schneuker.

Local entrepreneurs and business owners wishing to attend Thursday's resource fair are encouraged to register online by visiting, or by calling the Seguin Economic Development Corporation's office at (830) 401-2476. The event will include complimentary breakfast tacos and snacks for those in attendance.
