Center for Business & Innovation

Business TuneUp is a workshop style training for existing businesses in the early growth stages. Workshops are currently held in person at the Thurston EDC office. The workshops are paired with online learning modules so participants can prepare for the workshops and review what they have learned and created after the workshops are complete. Business TuneUp focuses on 4 major aspects of successfully growing your business: accounting, marketing, human resources, and long term planning. There are currently three workshops that run individually:

Accounting: setup your chart of accounts in QuickBooks Online, integrate third party apps into QuickBooks, and learn how to create financial statements.

Marketing: design a basic website in Webflow and create search engine optimization for your website.

Human Resources: create an operations guide for your business while learning the basics of recruiting and retaining talented employees.

Scholarships currently available for the Cities of Lacey and Olympia.
