"Entrepreneurship is a key component to revitalizing any community. What are we doing to support entrepreneurs? We need an action plan." said Moraine Park's Economic and Workforce Development Community Coordinator Laurie Barz. "With Green Lake Renewal's dedication to supporting entrepreneurs, we felt that TownSquare was the perfect location to hold this 'Start Your Own Business' series."
“Along with this important coursework, we encourage entrepreneurs to enter Green Lake Renewal’s BizStarts program,” said Kate Salas, executive director of Green Lake Renewal. “In this mentor-based program, we will match you with seasoned professionals, successful business owners who are determined to help you grow your new or expanding business in the Green Lake area.”
