Our Lunch n' Learn series recently started back up and will continue every two to three weeks through the end of the year. We have great speakers lined up, presenting valuable, interesting information for young, growing startups and small businesses. You can find a calendar of upcoming Lunch n' Learns on our website here.


About the Center for Innovation

Our next Lunch n' Learn will be facilitated by Dr. Mike Ebinger from the WSU Center for Innovation. The Center for Innovation provides technical assistance and applied research to new businesses and those who have great ideas and would like to become the region’s newest businesses. In short, they work with entrepreneurs to test the feasibility of their business ideas. The Center helps ideas that show promise develop into actual businesses.

About Business Model and Lean Canvas

Business plan or business model? The business model canvas and lean canvas offer alternatives to the lengthy, inflexible business plans of the past. Come find out more about where business model canvases and lean canvases can lead you and your business. Join Dr. Ebinger as he walks through canvases with example and provides his thoughts on business plans and business models. 


This event is great for entrepreneurs looking to determine the feasibility of their idea and those with recently launched businesses or established small businesses looking to grow.
