IMMBIZ to formally open computer lab
Made possible through the generous donation of Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, the computer lab is open to clients of IMMBIZ and others.
A ribbon cutting will take place at noon on June 20 at the IMMBIZ headquarters at the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency, 1320 North 15th Street (State Road 29), just north of Lake Trafford Road.
IMMBIZ is Immokalee's center for creative entrepreneurial efforts. Over a dozen new businesses have been launched with the help of the center in its first year of operation.
The computer lab is an ongoing effort to move Immokalee entrepreneurs further into the highly competitive and technical world of business in the 21st Century. Through the lab, IMMBIZ will offer courses to small business owners and entrepreneurs in Quickbooks, Microsoft Office 2010 Business applications such as Excel, Word and Outlook; as well as a wide range of computer skills and applications. The center is also offering assistance to small business owners who wish to register for U.S. Housing & Urban Development Section 3 certification to help procure government contracts.
