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.
