Do you have an idea to start or expand a business that makes money, builds community and conserves the environment? Washington Coast Works and Enterprise for Equity invite you to a free information session to learn more about the Washington Coast Works Sustainable Small Business Competition.
The competition has been established by The Nature Conservancy, in collaboration with Enterprise for Equity, Pinchot University’s Center for Inclusive Entrepreneurship and the Taala Fund, and funded in part by the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Business Development Grant U.S. Department of Agriculture
The competition will be open to applicants starting new businesses in Grays Harbor, Jefferson and Clallam Counties, including the tribal communities of Neah Bay, La Push, Hoh, Queets and Taholah, as well as other rural communities, and the cities of Forks, Ocean Shores, Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Montesano, Cosmopolis and Westport.
The competition is designed to diversify the local economy through the development of new small businesses, build business leadership in local communities, grow a constituency that supports conservation and sustainable natural resource use, and ultimately contribute to a new vision of sustainable community and economic development on the Washington Coast.
