Get help with the documents and paperwork you need to launch or grow your business from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2 at the Centilia Cultural Center at El Centro de la Raza, Plaza Roberto Maestas, 1160 S. Roberto Maestas Festival St.

At this event you’ll find experts who are excited to help you start or grow your business.  Bring the paperwork you want to work on; we'll roll up our sleeves and help you. Librarians will be there to help people find market research details, and we'll have Spanish speakers helping at the event.

Bring that business plan you’ve been working on, or get help getting started with one.  Or, ask for help as you apply for a business license online, fill out a loan application, or other paperwork related to launching or growing your business.

You can bring your own computer or use one of those provided.  If you need advice on where you are in the process or guidance on next steps, there will be folks who can help with that too.
