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.
Spokane business-services company LaunchPad Inland Northwest is moving its offices to the 1889 Building, starting next month. The company, launched by co-founders Bill Kalivas and Alan Battle, is one year old and up to now has used the Holley Mason Building for offices and rented spaces for entrpreneurs.
Kalivas said the new site, at 120 N. Stevens, has advantages that
the firm’s current site can’t provide. LaunchPad works with businesses in finding partners, financing assistance and marketing consulting. It also offers work space for its member businesses.
LaunchPad will take 1,000 feet on the ground level of the building; close to two-thirds of the main floor will belong to a new wine tasting business, Nectar Tasting Room, being opened by Spokane resident Josh Wade.
Kalivas said having Wade’s coffee and wine bar as a nearby business helped him make the move, making available wine and other offerings for LaunchPad events or visitors.
The other benefit of the new space, he added, is having street-level access to networking events and work spaces used by LaunchPad members.
