Cool Tools - Technology I

Take your Business to the Next Level
  As part of a new professional development series, the North Coast Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is launching “Cool Tools”, a series of workshops and one-on-one  professional support designed to help owners of pre-start up, start-up and emerging businesses learn about, and learn how to use, no cost and low cost technologies available on the internet.
“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,” noted Sandy Neal, Operations Manager for the North Coast SBDC. “These workshops will help business owners learn about programs that can help them get and stay organized, save money on programs they already use, and get more mobile by using online programs like document and data storage.”
Workshops begin August 12 and run through November. Pre-registration is required. For more information call:
