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.

Nevada Department of Business and Industry logo with "Growing business in Nevada" in quotes. 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.

Our classes are:

  • Bilingual - English and Spanish
  • Centered on relevant business topics
  • Accessible in person and remotely
  • A nexus for additional business resources such as lending and in-person counseling

Washable face coverings are free for eligible small businesses

The Henderson Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Nevada Governor's COVID-19 Task Force to distribute free, washable face coverings to eligible, small businesses and nonprofits. Eligible organizations include those with 50 or fewer employees. Following requests made by eligible organizations, the chamber will reply with details on pick-up or delivery.
Face covering request form

“As our state continues to re-open for business, the chamber continues to develop proactive measures to not only prevent the spread of the virus, but encourage quicker economic recovery,” said Scott Muelrath, president and CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. “These face coverings put us in a position to support those who are struggling most to secure their own supply of face coverings for employees, our smallest of businesses.”

For those organizations with more than 50 employees who have interest in receiving coverings, email Kelly Green to be placed on the wait list. Face coverings are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.

FIRST ANNUAL RURAL NEVADA STARTUP PITCH COMPETITION

Great Basin College is hosting a pitch competition on Sept. 25 in Elko, with video links at the other campuses and a Zoom link for anyone not able to make it to a campus. There will be education in the morning and early afternoon for entrepreneurs and potential angels, and the pitch competition will begin at 1:30 pm with a maximum of five pitches.

Join them for a full day of education around entrepreneurship and financing, with panel discussions and a pitch competition with cash prizes for those who place in first, second and third. Visit the Rural Nevada Start-Up Pitch Competition website to register.

The idea behind this program is to expand the entrepreneurial ecosystem that is already developing in Reno – Tahoe area, and develop an entrepreneurial ecosystem in rural Nevada. This will include supporting entrepreneurs with:

  • Mentorship
  • Access to capital
  • Networks of entrepreneurs

Through partnerships with existing resources including Great Basin College, StartUpNV, Entrepreneur’s Assembly, the Nevada Small Business Development Center and Extension, they will create an entrepreneur network that has less separation between rural entrepreneurs and Nevada’s population centers. It will be comprised of mentors, entrepreneur support organizations, government entities, founders and investors. This will increase Nevada’s resiliency in the face of downturns and increase the economy statewide.

The first video in our Education series leading to the Rural Nevada StartUp Pitch Competition on Nov. 6 is available now.  Click here to watch the video that covers the basics of how to use Zoom video.
