Network facilitators help entrepreneurs identify their strategic needs and goals. One-to-one coaching is provided free of charge and is offered on an ongoing basis. Meetings occur where the entrepreneurs are most comfortable—at their business, a library, coffee shop, or other local facilities.
Facilitators tap into their networks and relationships to refer entrepreneurs to resources and services that coincide with the business’s needs. Referrals may include funding sources, microloans, technical assistance and market research. Volunteers with specific business expertise are often available to assist entrepreneurs with their specialized needs.
The Los Alamos Entrepreneurial Network is a program of Los Alamos Connect, the principal economic development investment unit of Los Alamos National Security, LLC and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).
