BOOST Your Business Workshop

Boost Your Business: Tools and Resources for Going Digital is targeted at sustaining and growing our small businesses on the Greater Eastside. This new initiative is being led by Startup425 with support from Bellevue College and OneEastside SPARK. The program is focused on better supporting those businesses disproportionately affected by COVID-19, with an emphasis on businesses owned by women, minorities, and people of color.

Our inaugural FREE, one-day, virtual workshop hosted on the Brazen virtual event platform will provide participants access to complimentary and low-cost solutions to get their business online and/or boost their existing digital presence. The morning educational sessions, curated by Bellevue College, will feature digital success stories from Eastside small business owners, in addition to valuable insights from a host of experts in technology tools, social media, and marketing. This will be followed by an opportunity for attendees to connect one-on-one with regional consultants, service firms, and technology providers to engage and gain their insights ongoing digital. We anticipate repeating the event two more times in October 2021 and February 2022.
