Women entre­pre­neurs are invit­ed to attend the EDC’s Women’s Busi­ness Boot Camp, a half-day work­shop specif­i­cal­ly designed to tune up exist­ing busi­ness­es and to start new ones, on Jan­u­ary 19th on Orcas Island. Par­tic­i­pants will learn how to write or revamp a busi­ness plan, find fund­ing, learn about mar­ket­ing and net­work­ing, learn about gov­ern­ment pro­grams, and much more.

The work­shop fea­tures speak­ers from the Small Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion (SBA), the Wash­ing­ton State Depart­ment of Labor & Indus­tries, and the EDC. Instruc­tors will bring pre­sen­ta­tions and mate­ri­als specif­i­cal­ly designed to help women entre­pre­neurs grow their busi­ness­es, and to find fund­ing specif­i­cal­ly for women-owned busi­ness­es.   This work­shop will pro­vide par­tic­i­pants with clear and prac­ti­cal knowl­edge to bat­tle dif­fi­cult busi­ness chal­lenges, mak­ing their busi­ness­es stronger.

Details: Orcas Island, Thurs­day, Jan­u­ary 19th from 10:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Emmanuel Epis­co­pal Church in East­sound. Space is lim­it­ed and reser­va­tions are required; please reserve seats ear­ly to ensure avail­abil­i­ty.  Cost: $40 includes tuition, mate­ri­als, lunch and refresh­ments. For tick­ets: www.sanjuansedc.org/bootcamp; for ques­tions: (360) 378‑2906 or info@sanjuansedc.org.

The EDC thanks Emmanuel Epis­co­pal Church for pro­vid­ing the venue, and Islanders Bank, Her­itage Bank, San Juan Coun­ty gov­ern­ment, the Town of Fri­day Har­bor, and the Ports of Fri­day Har­bor and Lopez for their sup­port of the EDC’s programs.

The San Juan Coun­ty Eco­nom­ic Devel­op­ment Coun­cil (EDC) strives to strength­en and diver­si­fy the econ­o­my of San Juan Coun­ty.  We believe a strong econ­o­my builds a strong com­mu­ni­ty.   The EDC works to build an envi­ron­ment that helps busi­ness own­ers cre­ate jobs.  We serve busi­ness:  link­ing orga­ni­za­tions and resources, pro­vid­ing valu­able infor­ma­tion, ren­der­ing assis­tance and advo­cat­ing for an improved island busi­ness environment.
