As a business owner, you are faced with a myriad of decisions to make on any given day. Whether it be about pricing, marketing, or human resources, you probably wonder if you are doing things correctly and efficiently in your business. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could turn to someone who has been there before to give you expert guidance – for free? Well, now you have access to a network of people like that at Launch Workplaces. We are pleased to announce a relationship with SCORE, a professional organization of volunteer expert business mentors! A SCORE mentor will be hosting free office hours every Tuesday at Launch Workplaces in Gaithersburg, and SCORE will be holding their educational training sessions in Gaithersburg.
Please meet David Westreich, your SCORE mentor!
David is a past executive in the construction industry where he worked in marketing, sales, public relations and government contracting. Whether you are starting something new or looking to strengthen your company’s performance, he is ready to help! And if he cannot help directly, he can access the entire SCORE network to get the answers you seek.
While most mentoring services limit how often you can use the service, SCORE is different because they will give you as many hours as you need. You can connect with David in person, over the phone or via video chat for as long as you want, for as often as you want over the life time of your business, and it’s always free. SCORE is a resource partner of the SBA.
David will be at Launch on Tuesdays starting January 16 and can see clients from 10 AM to 3 PM. An appointment is required. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us in the Gaithersburg kitchen on Tuesday, January 23 at 3 PM for a Meet and Greet presentation and afternoon snacks with David.
SCORE will also be hosting their workshops at Launch this winter, see flyer below for class topics and dates. You can learn how to create a Facebook business page, how to write a winning business plan, and how to capture federal contracting opportunities at their sessions, among other things. Those classes have a small fee but Launch members can attend at a 25% discount.
All day workshops will be $45 and half-day workshops will be $30. Use the code LAUNCH18 during checkout. All upcoming workshops can be viewed via the following link: https://washingtondc.score.org/content/take-workshop-287 .
We hope you can take advantage of these valuable benefits from Launch Workplaces!
