Virtual Launch & Grow (Lynnwood)

May 12 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm


Prerequisite for Grow & Thrive
Launch & Grow Your Business is a Washington State SEAP approved course designed to train participants on starting and running their business. Through seven, 3-hour sessions participants will learn how to manage, market and finance their business while creating a solid business plan.

NOTICE: In an effort to follow the state guidelines regarding the Coronavirus, Launch & Grow sessions may be held via a virtual meeting on the Zoom platform, not in-person. We will notify all enrollees prior to the start of the series.


In response to the current employment situation, we have decided to eliminate the $399 registration fee for the May Launch and Grow: Lynnwood class.


This opportunity is designed to be an immersive, seven-week program and is a paid course.
