Everett, WA – April 19, 2022 – the NW Innovation Resource Center (NWIRC) presents its WA Data Workshop for Business designed for leaders, managers, and decision-makers in small to medium businesses offering an opportunity to explore the power of understanding and utilizing data in strategic planning and operational efficiency. They learn how to go beyond storing and managing data to using it to innovate their business continuously.
This virtual four (4) week seminar begins May 24, 2022 and is a unique offering to small and medium businesses in northwest Washington. Participants will explore the importance of data analytics, how to get started, the tools available, and how to impact your business growth and resilience with data.
“As one of the top 5 financial cooperatives in the country, BECU provides support to thousands of small businesses. We recognize their critical contribution to the vitality of our economy,” said Scott Strand, BECU’s EVP and Chief Operating Officer. “The opportunity for businesses to maintain a competitive edge with the utilization of new technologies such as those included in the WA Data Workshop will strengthen their growth potential and provide security for their employees and customers.”
Often, we limit our use of data analytics to e-commerce or retail businesses to analyze or influence buying behavior. It has so much more value in all industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, and inventory planning to name a few. “Small businesses often struggle to adopt new technologies in an affordable yet impactful way for their business,” NWIRC’s Executive Director, Diane Kamionka states. “We are pleased to be joined by industry experts and small business owners to share their knowledge and experience with business leaders to accelerate our region’s competitive success in our digital economy.”
