Owen County small businesses invited to attend free workshop hosted by WCISBDC  

(Owen County, IN) – The West Central Indiana Small Business Development Center (WCISBDC), in partnership with West Central 2025 and the Small Business Administration, is hosting a workshop in Spencer, Indiana on March 6 for all small businesses within Owen County. The WCISBDC will be sharing the various no-cost services and resources the agency offers to developing and established small businesses. All Owen County businesses are encouraged to attend to learn more.  

“The purpose of this dialogue is to ensure that businesses are taking advantage of the opportunities available for them,” said Dave Bittner, Rural Business Advisor at the WCISBDC. “We find that many times, small businesses aren’t aware of the no-cost services available. Whether it’s understanding financing options, writing a business plan, hiring, marketing or more, our team of regional advisors help organizations find solutions to continue generating success.”  

The workshop will be led by Bittner, who will give an overview of the services offered and how businesses can take advantage of them. Bittner also plans to share success stories of different businesses in the region who have found value in these resources. Businesses in attendance will also have the opportunity to ask questions and share what opportunities they see within their own existing or future businesses. 

The workshop will be held at 10 am on Monday, March 6 at the Owen County Family YMCA, 1111 IN-46, Spencer, IN 47460. Businesses who are unable to attend but are interested in learning more are encouraged to contact Jacy Norton at [email protected].  

The WCISBDC will be hosting various workshops in every county across West Central Indiana over the coming months.
