Business Development Program's Mission
The Business Development Program aims to instruct small business owners about fundamental business concepts while providing access and direction to informational resources. Small business owners, at any stage of development, can benefit from educational opportunities and awareness of all business network resources. This is where the Business Development Program, with its workshops and relationships with Nevada business programs, steps in to act as a guide.
Navigating today's business climate is difficult, and information is either scarce or diluted. As a response, the Nevada Department of Business and Industry created The Road Map to help small business owners at every stage of development. This interactive guide covers all business concepts and links small business owners to resources from helpful organizations across Nevada. We have developed classes based on the business topics in "The Road Map" to help businesses in their lifelong learning journey.
With a focus on providing education and serving as a bridge to additional resources for Nevada businesses, we have created "Coping with COVID-19" weekly virtual programming and networking opportunities. These workshops are:
- Centered on relevant business topics,
- offered in both English & Spanish, and
- a nexus for additional business resources such as lending and in-person counseling.
