Batavia Business Beat: Batavia Chamber is giving back
Spring’s weather may seem to be a roller-coaster ride this year, but the Batavia Chamber of Commerce has been consistent in working to give back to the community. Applications are open to Batavia Chamber members for a mentoring scholarship designed to bolster a business’s acumen across all areas of operation. To ensure a successful program, the Batavia Chamber is partnering with the Fox Valley Entrepreneurial Center. The Batavia Chamber has donated $10,000 and the FVEC is donating the remaining amount to offer two scholarships for the program.
