The Home‐Based Business Conference and its related Lunch & Learn Series began as programs of the York County Economic Development Office, in partnership with the York County Chamber of Commerce. County representatives learned that two‐thirds of York County’s businesses are home‐based, a trend that is growing both locally and nationally. In 2018, all six neighboring localities joined together to co‐host the conference and lunch & learn series. This strategic partnership allows these nationally award‐winning home‐based initiatives to reach and assist more local business owners.
