As part of a new professional development series, in August the North Coast Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is launching “Cool Tech Tools for Entrepreneurs”, a series of workshops and one-on-one professional support designed to help owners of pre-start up, start-up and emerging businesses learn how to use no cost and low cost technologies available on the internet.
“Cool Tech Tools for Entrepreneurs is specifically designed to help with one of the biggest issues that we face on a daily basis, which is making better use of our time,” noted Sandy Neal, Operations Manager for the North Coast SBDC. “There are so many great opportunities in the “cloud” but it is hard for busy business owners to keep current on all the options available. This specialty series will show business owners how the power of technology can help them be more productive.”
The program will cover technology apps that increase productivity, using social media, website basics and development options, computer and cloud applications like Evernote, Office365, Google Docs and more.
“We really want to help our local business owners learn new tools that will help them succeed,” added Neal. “Some get to where they are just plugging along trying to make do, but we want them to love their business again.”
Workshops begin in August and will run through November. Pre-registration is required and applications are due August 6. For more information or to download an application, visit www.northcoastsbdc.org or call (707) 445-9720.
