Yampa Valley SCORE extends services to Craig
Steamboat Springs Yampa Valley SCORE, a nonprofit organization that counsels potential and existing entrepreneurs, will hold a free business seminar from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday in the Craig Center at 601 Yampa Ave. in Craig. The seminar's topic is "The First Steps to Starting Your Own Business."
"This seminar is the first direct extension of SCORE services to the Craig/Moffat area, something we have always been looking forward to," said Scott Ford, a local entrepreneur and SCORE volunteer who will conduct the seminar. "Yampa Valley SCORE's ongoing role will be to support economic development efforts by providing business training and counseling opportunities to existing and developing entrepreneurs in the Craig/Moffat area."
The seminar is being offered as a collaborative effort of the Northwest Colorado Community College, Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership, Craig Chamber of Commerce and Yampa Valley SCORE. Similar seminars have been offered in Steamboat for several years and were organized by Ford for six years.
"I have seen a lot of people who own successful businesses take their first steps to making their dream a reality by coming to this seminar," Ford said.
Registration for the free seminar is not required, and all are welcome to attend. Contact Yampa Valley SCORE at 870-4549, or visit SCORE on the Web at: www.yampavalley.info/business3571334.asp.
