The Home-Based Business Conference and related Lunch & Learn Series began as programs of the York County Economic Development Office, in partnership with the York County Chamber of Commerce.

York Chamber & County representatives learned that two-thirds of York County’s businesses are Home-based, a trend that is growing both locally and nationally. In an effort to assist this often overlooked, yet very important, sector of our local community, the Home-Based Business Assistance Program was developed, with the Conference and Lunch & Learn Series at the core.

Since the programs’ inception in 2014, several other nearby localities, including the cities of Newport News, Hampton and Williamsburg and James City County, have joined together to co-host the Conference and Lunch & Learn Series. This strategic partnership allows the Home-based events to reach and assist more local business owners.
