Monthly business workshops

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash., --  Do you have a great business idea, but don't know where to start?

'Start Smart' is a monthly business workshop offered through WSU Tri-Cities.

The workshops offer tips and provide plans to prospective business owners with creative ideas to get a jump start on their idea.

The two-hour workshop hones in on step by step basics on how to get your idea rolling.

"This is an amazing community," says LoAnn Ayers, the Career Officer at WSU Tri-Cities.  "There are a lot of resources available for folks who want to start a business, not necessarily with buckets of money, but with wise advice and counsel to help them moved forward and make smart decisions. That's why it's called Smart Start!"

This year, the workshops will be held at the Richland Public Library and require a $20 registration fee.  Applicants receive a workbook and various handouts to map out and explain the many different channels one must go through to start a business.

The workshops are held on the second Monday of each month; the next is Monday, October 10th.
