Using Technology to Strengthen our Businesses

Entrepreneurial success knows no gender, income, class, ethnicity, nor geographic location which means that WESST must help clients compete on merit in the general economy. Today, business competitiveness is closely tied to an entrepreneur’s understanding and knowledge about all aspects of business from marketing to financials to management.

Approximately 90% of WESST services incorporate capacity-building training and consulting. We are particularly focused on assisting small businesses incorporate technology tools into their business in order to benefit from and be responsive to our rapidly changing economy.

In 2017, all proceeds from the Silver Soiree will be utilized to improve and expand WESST’s consulting and training programs. Until now, the majority of these services have been delivered in person. With the launch of the Comcast Digital Studio in 2015,WESST now has an expanded set of options for service reach and delivery. These new distance learning options are especially relevant for rural New Mexico where the cost of delivering onsite business assistance has become cost-prohibitive. WESST is not proposing to eliminate face-to-face methods of delivery but instead will deliver a blended curriculum of live training and consulting and online versions, as well as develop and distribute new learning tools such as its soon-to-be released Financial Tools Mobile Learning App.

Your support is key to helping WESST continue to provide high-quality and cutting edge business training and consulting services. Please help us continue to educate small business owners so they can grow successful businesses and play an ever increasing role in New Mexico’s economy.
