Are you familiar with the “alphabet soup” of acronyms that represent organizations that can help you build your Wyoming business? Here is just a smattering: SBDC, MRC, PTAC, SBIR/STTR, WBC, SBA, WWBC, DWS, MW, WTBC, RPC.*
We often hear comments that business assistance in Wyoming is a “best kept secret.” In an effort to get the word out to more businesses and agencies, 2-hour seminars will be held throughout the state from now through March 3. “Meet Wyoming’s Business Assistance Experts,” will introduce you to all of these organizations that make up the Wyoming Business Resource Network. Representatives from each organization will be sharing information in-person at most of the events, so you can actually meet them face-to-face and ask questions.
Wyoming is a great place to own and operate a business, and Wyomingites are known to be hard working, independent individuals. The state is unique, with its superb opportunities for networking. The large geographic area with low population has been described as having one long Main Street, where everyone is connected to their neighbors, helping them out whenever possible.
Do not miss this opportunity to meet the passionate people who want to help your company succeed. Funding from the State of Wyoming and local and federal government resources supports a wide variety of business services, most of which are free of charge. These presentations will connect you with the expertise in the Wyoming Business Resource Network, and you will learn how they can serve your business – from start-up to expansion, to exit, and everything in-between!
