A first-of-its kind local workshop series for small businesses starts April 9 at Fuse in Richland. The weekly series, called Launch Startup, runs 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Tuesday through June 4. Entrepreneurs who have already started their company and are now looking to deepen their business knowledge and develop a plan for improvement are ideal candidates for this course.
This is the second in the Launch series of classes for startups. Weekly topics include financial growth and control, sales and marketing, product solutions, team building, building a customer service culture and financial growth and control. Instructors are seasoned business owners willing to share their experiences of success and challenges in growing a small business.
Each class follows the same general structure, which includes an introduction and leadership focal point, instructor presentation, group work time, class discussion, wrap up and networking time. The classes are interactive where students learn, do, share both in class and through homework assignments.
Instructors include Neal Taylor, attorney from Gravis Law; Torey Azure, chief marketing officer from Wildland and Brandcraft; Terry Smith, engineering manager from Sign Fracture Care; Jason Bell, chief of core training for the US Army; Casey Stratton, chief financial officer for Gravis Law; Ty Mulholland, CEO for Wildland and Brandcraft; and Lynn Carlson, IT specialist and community leader.
The class is $297 for Fuse members or $397 for nonmembers. Non-members receive free coworking at Fuse for the duration of the eight-week series.
