SWAMC Wraps Up Small Business Trainings

SWAMC recently wrapped up a series of free small business workshops in the Southwest Alaska region. The first workshop took place in King Salmon near the end of August 2008, King Cove came at the end of October, Dillingham in mid-November, and Kodiak in February. The three-day workshops focused on three core areas important to Southwest Alaska entrepreneurs: business plan writing and general business principles; the business of fishing; and tourism business development. 

Each workshop allowed for free one-on-one consultation time with the trainers. These workshops were made possible by USDA Rural Development through a Rural Business Enterprise Grant. 

If your community is interested in hosting a free business workshop, please contact the SWAMC office.
