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. Call them and arrange a time to counsel with the Director, Beth Holbrook. She gave me, Stefan Andrews, very valuable advice that helped me move my business forward.

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.

Newsletter, The Daily Pulse
The BRC’s weekly “Taking Care of Business” newsletter was phased into the “The Daily Pulse” — a Web site dedicated to bringing the most current, daily news and information to the business community. “The Daily Pulse” collects all the day’s business news and information from newspapers, magazines, Web sites, blogs, chambers of commerce, business associations and government agencies. It also provides resource material for small business development, entrepreneurship, financing, marketing, human resources and customer service, among other topics.
