Quick-Start Shoreline Tuesday May 14 - Business and Art collaboration

Monday, May 13, 2013

The Tuesday Quick-Start Shoreline Business Workshop for start-up, existing or potential business owners will be held on Tuesday, May 14th from 12 noon to 1:30 pm at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Avenue N.

Quick-Start Shoreline is presented by Shoreline Community College Small Business Accelerator and the City of Shoreline. The sessions are free and open to the public; feel free to bring a brown bag lunch or a snack.

  • Are you a business owner looking for new ways to engage new customers?
  • Are you an artist wanting to learn how to turn what you love doing into something that pays the bills?

On January 28, the Shoreline Council launched a pilot Business Mini-Grant program to help you do just that! The program will award up to $10,000 in matching funds for businesses to collaborate with local artists.

The program is designed to contribute to the Office of Economic Development's place-making initiative. Place-making is the thing that "turns a City from a place you can't wait to get through to a place you never want to leave." Artists have the unique ability to identify the thing that makes a place special, and they often possess the tools to highlight it. By tapping into this ability, Shoreline businesses will gain a competitive edge and Shoreline artists will hone their skills and gain new clients.

Both artists and business owners interested in grant funding are highly encouraged to participate in the Connect Designated Quick-Start workshops.

These workshops will cover such topics as tips on how to turn your hobby into a business, successfully applying for grant funding, how to leverage grand openings and other events to help you gain a competitive edge, and information on how to navigate the contracts and permits you need to make it all happen.

Today's workshop is How to apply for the Business Mini-Grant (with tips on grant writing in general) presented by Dan Eernissee, the Economic Development Manager for the City of Shoreline, and Mark McVeety, Director of SCC's Business Accelerator.
