The Thurston Economic Development Council Center for Business & Innovation (CB&I) — which offers one-on-one coaching, workshops, and additional resources to help start, grow, or streamline a business — has teamed up with the City of Yelm to open a satellite office at Yelm City Hall.

CB&I resources that will be available at the new office include Washington Center for Women in Business, Washington Procurement Technical Assistance Center, Senior Core of Retired Executives, Small Business Development Centers, and South Thurston Economic Development Initiative. The office will take walk-in visitors 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., and scheduled appointments 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

In addition to the satellite office, the CB&I, City of Yelm, Yelm Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Washington Center for Women in Business will hold two workshops at Yelm City Hall:

  • Where’s My Money? A Cash Flow System to Help You Keep Your Profit and Sanity, scheduled for Sept. 18, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • How to Start A Business: A Step by Step Road Map to Start Your Successful Small Business, scheduled for Oct. 2, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
