Business seminars at Mercy Corps Northwest offer a deep exploration in a range of business topics.
Seminars cover technology, marketing, finance, law, and other topics that are highly relevant to the small business owner. The sessions are interactive and also give the small business owner a chance to network among the business community. Each seminar is taught by a volunteer professional who is an expert in his/her field. They bring a diverse set of knowledge to the classroom, and are receptive to individual business problems.
