New Program for the New Year

Get your business idea off the ground this year! Learn from business professionals and entrepreneurial peers what it takes to launch your own business. 

Join us once a week in the day or evening where certified facilitators and experienced business owners from the community will guide you through your start-up. We’ll ask the right questions, draw on the knowledge in the room, and use available resources and connections in the community to point you in the right direction. In addition to exploring different topics each week, guest speakers are also brought in weekly to enrich the conversation and learn from the experience of others in the community.

“CO.STARTERS was that push I needed to launch… Because everything is laid out, you have no choice but to move forward. You just have to have the will to do it.”

Ashley Gladney, Founder of Mobile Mommy


"If it wasn’t for CO.STARTERS I wouldn’t know how to structure my business, how to file taxes, how to handle the red tape that we all encounter. Now my business is going to reach newer heights I never thought of..."

Jaylin Randolph, Founder of H.I.L.F.


“CO.STARTERS gave me direction and next steps, and a firm foundation to stand on to go out and grow my business.”
