Locally-Based Entrepreneurs in Sahuarita: Building an Entrepreneurial Culture
The Town of Sahuarita began an entrepreneurial outreach program with the help of the University of Arizona Eller College in 2011. Year 2 of the program will begin implementation in November 2012 with additional programs, networking, and mentor opportunities.
If you own a business in Sahuarita, have a home based business in Sahuarita, or are thinking of starting a business in Sahuarita and want to be involved in the program, please contact Kathy Ward, Manager of Economic Development & Communications.
The purpose of this project is twofold:
- identify and connect with the entrepreneurs in the Sahuarita community, identify business needs and aspirations;
- recommend key elements which should be included in the design of an effective Entrepreneur Development System (EDS) in Sahuarita.
An EDS for Sahuarita would actively work to connect Sahuarita’s entrepreneurs to the business development tools, technologies, market intelligence and network connections they need for business growth and sustainability in Sahuarita.
