UW, Wyoming SBDC Network to Host Workshop in Meeteetse

September 28, 2022

For anyone contemplating starting a small business, the thought alone can be daunting. However, advice and assistance are available.

Devan Costa-Cargill will discuss the ins and outs of starting a business during a Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network workshop titled “Start Your Own Business: Planning for Success” Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Meeteetse Branch Library, located at 2107 Idaho St. To register, go here. Registration is free.

Costa-Cargill, Wyoming SBDC Network regional director for Big Horn, Hot Springs, Park and Washakie counties, will discuss what it takes for people to start their own businesses; business structure considerations; business plan components; financial planning tools; and sources of capital.

An entrepreneur and teacher, Costa-Cargill launched her consulting career in the public school system, specifically in the area of special education. For the past 10 years, she operated her own small business, providing consultation and enrichment to families and early educators. Her work with the Wyoming SBDC Network began in April 2021, advising small-business startups through the first important steps of their journey.
