Focus Thrive


focusTHRIVE is a suite of six classes and tools for business owners and potential business owners, each designed to help you and your venture thrive. 

focusPLAN is the new name for our popular ten week Business Planning Course. Offered twice a year, in April and September, the course provides comprehensive training in all aspects of starting and running a business including cash flow, marketing, and procuring capital. Upon completion, students walk away with a viable business plan and are ready to start making their business dreams a reality. This class is also great for current business owners who are looking to grow or expand into a new area.

Once you've graduated from the focusPLAN class and have your business plan in hand, what are the next steps? Do you feel like you still need support? Team Jefferson wants to offer you a one to six month free membership in the Port Townsend CoLab, as well as give you advice and support from a Team Jefferson member throughout your tenure there. 

Harness the power of many voices dedicated to helping you succeed. Let Team Jefferson put together a focus group roundtable of local experts to hone in on a business issue that you feel could benefit from outside input. Get advice on marketing, branding, acquiring a partner—you choose what you’d like help with, and we’ll put together a team.

Do you ever wish you had your own startup team? A group of people dedicated to helping you get your business launched? Let Team Jefferson get you going by creating an implementation timeline, hosting weekly meetings with you and your staff, maybe even painting and helping you set up. For a reasonable cost, you can hire a group of people who have been there and done that and really want you to succeed.

Let Team Jefferson help you explore various funding options for your business. We can arrange a presentation with the members of the Local Investing Opportunities Network (LION). Learn about other sources of funding, and even get grant writing assistance.

Do you have the desire and grit to be a business owner, but don't necessarily want to start your own? Let Team Jefferson help you buy one! We can work with you to identify your skills and passions and narrow down a target industry. Then we'll search nationwide to find a business for sale that fits your criteria, and be there to assist you as you purchase it and move it to Jefferson County.
