Help for starting new businesses available

January 20, 2011

Big Spring Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Terry Wegman

People wanting to start a new business in Howard County will soon have another helping hand.

The Big Spring Economic Development Corp. announced it has contracted with Entrepreneur Alliance of Amarillo to provide start-up help to those wishing to open their own businesses in the area.

Terry Wegman, BSEDC executive director, said the firm will open a temporary office in the Chamber of Commerce building around the first of February. Plans call for consultants to be available to the public approximately four days a month.

“We can't incentivize small retail businesses,” Wegman said. “But this is a tool we can use to help those kind of businesses get started. We have a lot of people come in and want us to help them get their businesses started. The consultants will be able to take them through the process.”
