This month's workshops:
3:30-4:30 P.M. Commercial Real Estate 101, Koorndyk
Renting commercial property is nothing like renting an apartment. There are lots of factors to consider – price per square foot, lease terms (gross, triple net, etc.), build-out expenses, plus permitting and zoning. It can seem overwhelming! Val Beerbower, director of economic development at the Downtown Dayton Partnership, will break down these terms and what they mean for you. Get the inside scoop to what businesses need to bring to the table in lease negotiations, and you’ll be on your way to moving into first-floor or office space in no time.
5:30-6:30 P.M. Ideation Workshop , Lewis
Do you want to start a business and have what feels like a million ideas of things you could start? Interested in entrepreneurship?
