June 2021: Entrepreneurial Resources, Clean Materials Economy, and Cooperatives in June

June 10, 2021 1:00-2:30pm: Business Resources Across Washington State
Business Technical Assistance Providers are invited to participate in a networking meeting that explores ways we can help entrepreneurs more effectively find the resources that are perfect for their needs.  Help connect small businesses to the crucial business development services in rural and urban parts of the state, especially those businesses that have been left out of opportunities in the past.  We want to work with all of you to help make these business resources more visible to the entrepreneur through an online resource. REGISTER HERE!

June 16, 9:30-11:00am: Micro Businesses, Macro Opportunity: Building Community, Prosperity and a Healthy Planet from the Ground Up
Join us for a discussion that examines the role our small businesses can play in the emerging clean materials economy. Micro businesses can help drive the transition to a clean economy while expanding equitable opportunity in communities large and small – if given the chance. Insightful leaders will explore how this often-overlooked part of our economy can access opportunity and accelerate the promise of clean materials: good jobs, healthier communities, a more sustainable planet and broadly shared prosperity. REGISTER HERE!

June 23, 2021 at 12:00pm: The Power of Cooperatives
Come and learn about the vital role cooperatives play in the business development ecosystem at local, state and national levels.  Join this event where leaders from around the country will share the “Big Picture” of how we can build a truly inclusive, equitable and democratic economy.  Speakers will share compelling,  action oriented materials about cooperatives, other broader ownership strategies and how we can grow cooperatives in WA state. REGISTER HERE!

June 30, 2021 12:30 - 1:30: Entrepreneurial Resources Across Washington State Showcase
This event takes a first look at what is possible when business services organizations work more effectively together and how this can shorten the path for business owners to find the vital business training, technical assistance and financing resources they need to be successful. REGISTRATION OPENS SOON!
