WDCEP Launches Initial Start-Up Considerations Initiative

Initial Start-Up Considerations, an initiative of the Washington, DC Economic Partnership’s BusinessPremier program, was developed to actively engage targeted communities through entrepreneurship training and tutorials on the use of the 2008 Doing Business in DC Guide Book (published in English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese and Vietnamese).

This series and its publication have been sponsored by a generous grant from the Neighborhood Investment Fund administered by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning & Economic Development. WDCEP’s BusinessPremier program has partnered with various CDC, EDCs, Main Streets and Ward Business Councils to effectively reach our targeted audience.

Initial Start-Up Considerations workshops will be held at various locations throughout the months of February and March.
