StartZone offers a variety of services to help you successfully launch and grow your business.

  • Referrals - If you need help that is beyond the scope of our program, or if an another program is better able to meet your needs, StartZone will provide you with a referral and a warm hand-off to the appropriate service and make sure the service is completed to your satisfaction.

  • Reality Check: Starting a Business Eyes Wide Open is a monthly four-part workshop series that helps new members assess their readiness and the feasibility of their business goals and get to a quick "go-no go" decision. Members who complete the series with a business goal that "pencils out" on paper will have an opportunity to meet with a StartZone Business Specialist for one-on-one consulting.

  • Our Drill Down Sessions help you build on business fundamentals in the areas of marketing, back office operations, and business finance. These workshops are generally offered on Thursday evenings and many are repeated quarterly. See our calendar for details.

  • For members with a viable business goal, our Consulting Services offer one-on-one time with a StartZone Business Specialist focused on developing a start up plan, a marketing plan, a business plan, or a loan application.

  • New in 2011, Business ESL is being offered in partnership with Highline's acclaimed ESL program to offer a unique opportunity for our ESL members to learn business while learning English.

  • StartZone members participate in MicroMentor which connects StartZone members to hundreds of professional business mentors across the country for help with business fundamentals as well as industry specific advice.

  • StartZone hosts a monthly Networking venue where members have an opportunity to mix, mingle and meet with other StartZone members as well as local businesses. Sessions include chalk talks on relevant business topics as well as Structured Peer-Support.

Call us today for more information on our services, and be sure to visit our calendar to see all of our upcoming events and workshops.
