Entrepreneur Launch Pad is pleased to recommend this excellent free resource for new business owners. There are many excellent business building references in their reference library, and there are computers available for your use.

What is Zions Business Resource Center:
The Business Resource Center provides the Utah business community with access to tools and information to answer business questions and help strengthen new and existing businesses. It includes a publications library, computer workstations and knowledgeable staff ready to assist clients in their business endeavors – all free of charge.
The center has also partnered with U.S. organizations like the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Small Business Administration to offer seminars, workshops and business-networking opportunities. In addition, the Salt Lake City SCORE chapter is currently co-located in the center. SCORE provides free personalized business counseling.
Creation of the Business Resource Center is the first phase of Zions Bank’s plan to expand its support for business owners statewide. The bank is currently building partnerships with Small Business Development Centers located at Utah colleges and universities to help foster entrepreneurship in several communities.
