Wyoming Small Business Development Center Workshop in Meeteetse on Tuesday, Oct. 4

Written by on October 3, 2022

Anyone with a big idea for a small business is encouraged to attend the Meeteetse workshop, where the Wyoming Small Business Development Center will share the specifics for a good start.

The thought alone can be daunting for anyone contemplating starting a small business. However, advice and assistance are available thru a new workshop jointly sponsored by the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (S.B.D.C.)

Devan Costa-Cargill will discuss the ins and outs of starting a business during a Wyoming S.B.D.C. Network workshop titled “Start Your Own Business: Planning for Success” Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Meeteetse Branch Library, located at 2107 Idaho St.

Costa-Cargill is the Wyoming SBDC Network regional director for Big Horn, Hot Springs, Park, and Washakie counties. Her workshop will cover the basics of starting and maintaining a small business in Wyoming:

  • Learn what it takes to start a business
  • Pathways to business ownership
  • Business structure considerations
  • Business Plan components
  • Entrepreneurial networking
  • Financial Planning tools
  • How to be “funding ready”
  • Sources of capital

Registration for the S.B.D.C. Network workshop is free – the first step to take toward a new entrepreneurial endeavor.

An entrepreneur and teacher, Costa-Cargill launched her consulting career in the public school system, specifically in special education. For the past ten years, she has operated her own small business, providing consultation and enrichment to families and early educators. Her work with the Wyoming SBDC Network began in April 2021, advising small-business startups through the first essential steps of their journey.

The Wyoming SBDC Network offers business expertise to help Wyoming residents think about, launch, grow, reinvent or exit their business. The Wyoming SBDC Network is hosted by the University of Wyoming with state funds from the Wyoming Business Council and funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
