There will be a limit of 25 participants allowed to participate in this workshop for the six-week program. Kayla McDonald, Business Development Manager for the SEDC had this to say about the six-week program, “There are many entrepreneurs in Sweetwater County, and one of the many services of the SEDC is to provide resources to help businesses be successful, by having this workshop we will be giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to obtain the knowledge of how to start their own business, and ultimately they will be helping the economy of Sweetwater County with providing service as well as jobs.” The How to Start your Own Business Workshop will provide tips, resources, and most of all hands-on examples on how to be successful in creating your own business.  Along with the How to Start your Own Business Workshop we will also be offering a Business Plan Competition. The Sweetwater Economic Development Coalition is excited to also partner with the Green River Chamber of Commerce to co-host this program.
