The City of Spokane this week launched a new Spokane Business Center on the main floor of City Hall. It came about after a survey of area small businesses learned many wanted a simpler system for interaction with city staff and city agencies.
The main goal will be easier access to resources to help startups get information and to help growing businesses stay focused on reducing red tape.
The center's main thrusts are:
- To provide self-help information including a current listing of business workshops and networking events.
- To connect businesses with partner organizations that can help with business planning, marketing, counseling, and capital.
- To provide a resource guide on startup information and business development assistance. This information also will be attached to every business license mailed and each on-line license application
Anyone who's used the center so far, let us know how you rate the level of service.
