Entrepreneurs find help under new Reno banner

Navigating the maze of rules, laws, pitfalls and deal breakers involved in starting a business can stump — or slow down — even the savviest potential entrepreneur.

A new umbrella coalition called Entrepreneurship Nevada (e-nevada.org) brings more than a dozen groups to the table to help any business find the help they need. E-Nevada provides the info for you to find the right help for your niche. SCORE? NSBDC? NCET? UNR? SBA? — all the “alphabet soup” organizations are part of the coalition. 

It’s an unprecedented effort to help build a culture of cooperation with the goal of helping Reno, Sparks dig out of our economic mess.

I am editor of E-Nevada NOW — the newsletter. We published our first issue! Find it at ENevadaNOW.org  

This month’s  Success Story:  Soak Nail Spa & Lounge — from one employee to 25 in five years. Read how owners Shannon and Darin Dunlap did it. 

Board member Rod Hosilyk explains the mission behind the  NON-PROFIT E-Nevada.org.

Business-Plan competitions vet ideas for startup companies, much like on the TV show “Shark Tank”  and provide money (up to $50,000) for the winners. 

 The newsletter will grow and add features each month. Follow us … this is  an unprecedented community effort!

Have a suggestion of a company to feature? Special advice? Let us know.
