The Houston County Economic Development Authority (EDA) in partnership with the La Crescent Chamber has been awarded a Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF) grant to open Keep Company Co-Working Space in La Crescent, Minn.
Oftentimes it can be hard for start-ups and small businesses to afford working space and justify expenses on technical support. Additionally, many small businesses have a limited need for full-time offices but would instead benefit from a common space in which to meet existing and prospective clients.
To add value, the Houston County EDA is seeking Houston County businesses who offer technical support in the areas of advertising, technology, legal, and website design who are willing to offer their services out of the space through a class or other types of training to other businesses. One day per month a new business will be featured. Businesses who participate will be offered a stipend while grant funds last. Houston County businesses will be prioritized on a first come, first served basis.
To learn more about Keep Company Co-Working Space or to offer your services out of the space, contact Allison Wagner, Houston County EDA Director at EDA@co.houston.mn.us or (507) 725-5836.
