Anyone interested in starting or expanding their business or learning the secrets of successful business owners can attend College of the Canyons second annual Dream and Discover Entrepreneurs Conference from 8 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Tuesday in the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center.

Tickets cost $39 in advance, $49 at the door, or $15 with a valid student ID.

The panel of speakers includes award-winning photographer and entrepreneur Steve Uzzell as the event’s closing keynote speaker.

The Small Business Development Center at College of the Canyons serves a 2,838-square-mile service area, which includes the Santa Clarita, San Fernando and Antelope valleys. Since opening its doors in January 2006 the center assisted more than 2,500 individuals with free consultation services and low-cost business training.

Last year’s conference provided tips to more than 200 small business owners and budding entrepreneurs about business marketing methods and how to plan for business growth and access capital.

Immediately following the conference the college will host SpeedBIZ, an interactive information session featuring eight center professional business consultants and representatives from Citibank and Poole & Shaffery, LLP from 12:15 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. The cost to attend SpeedBIZ, which includes lunch, is $20.
