Boost Your Business: Tools and Resources for Going Digital is targeted at sustaining and growing our small businesses on the Eastside. This new initiative is being led by Startup425 with support from Bellevue College and OneEastside SPARK. The program is focused on supporting those businesses disproportionately affected by COVID-19, with an emphasis on businesses owned by women, minorities, and people of color.

Our inaugural FREE, one-day, virtual workshop hosted on the Brazen virtual event platform will provide participants access to complimentary and low-cost solutions to get their business online and/or boost their existing digital presence. The morning educational sessions, curated by Bellevue College, will feature digital success stories from Eastside small business owners, in addition to valuable insights from a host of experts in technology tools, social media, and marketing. This will be followed by an opportunity for attendees to connect one-on-one with regional consultants, service firms, and technology providers to engage and gain their insights on going digital. We anticipate repeating the event two more times in October 2021 and February 2022.

This resource-dense workshop features educational sessions curated by Bellevue College in the morning, with an interactive vendor fair in the afternoon.
This is a no cost opportunity to connect one-on-one via chat with experts who can help you establish and/or boost your online presence. Thanks to the innovative Brazen virtual events platform, we’re able to bring this workshop and vendor fair right into your living room! You are sure to come away with complimentary and low-cost solutions to add to your small business toolkit.
