Spokane business-networking company, LaunchPad Inland Northwest, has announced new services and business training as part of its offerings.
When the company launched in early 2010, its focus was on offering shared office spaces, promoting networking events and workshops.
In a release coinciding with the firm's relocation to the 1889 Building, at 120 N. Stevens, co-founder/organizer Bill Kalivas said the new services will provide additional training and consulting services for its paid members. Among those: Social media consulting, on-site training, and business development.
LaunchPad now offers two levels of membership: Plus and Pro, which cost $35 and $79 per month, respectively.
Kalivas said LaunchPad will still host events and workshops for area business people. Pro and Plus members get free or discount access to many events; they also get other benefits, summarized on the LaunchPad membership web page.
Kalivas said the added level of services and training is an "evolution" of the LaunchPad goal of being the go-to organization to help Spokane-area businesses grow more prosperous.
