The Wenatchee Valley College Center for Entrepreneurship recently launched the StartUp NCW Office Hour program. Office Hour is a monthly program where local entrepreneurs receive a free consultation with volunteer experts on a topic essential to their small business success.

The Office Hour program is currently scheduled the first Thursday of every month from 9:30-10:30 a.m. at Mission St. Commons (218 S. Mission St.) in Wenatchee.

Individuals who are interested in meeting with volunteer professionals during the office hour may sign up for a specific 15-minute time slot on the mentorship page of the StartUp NCW website (startupncw.com/mentorship). Participants will receive a fully-focused, one-to-one meeting where they can ask questions that are pertinent to their new or growing business. Topics include StartUp 101 for the entrepreneur, accounting, business legal structures, marketing and more.

“Mission St. Commons is the ideal location to host our first Office Hour sessions,” said Stacy Luckensmeyer, WVC business and industry liaison. “We hope that both the co-working space setting and the program will continue help support those who are launching a new business or are trying to make stronger connections in our business community.”
