IESBDC Offers Site Selection Workshop in Riverside

Monday, October 21st, 2013

The Inland Empire Small Business Development Center (IESBDC) will host a free workshop titled “Why Lease Terms and Location Matter” on Wednesday, October 23 from 9am to 11am in the City of Riverside City Council Chambers.

The workshop will provide the tools and information necessary to assist business owners with location and lease term negotiations, while keeping in mind City zoning and building codes. As a business owner, it is important to ensure the location you have selected is in the right area of town, near your company’s customer base, and is the right size for efficient operations. This seminar will help guide you through the process.

Members of the City of Riverside Economic Development team will also be present to provide a brief overview of the tools and resources available to businesses through the Office of Economic Development’s Business First and Business Ready initiatives.

The workshop is presented by Progressive Real Estate Partners and sponsored by the Inland Empire Small Business Development Center and the City of Riverside.
