The Southeastern Utah Business and Technical Assistance Center (BTAC) is open for business. The BTAC recently received grant funding from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development through the Rural Coworking and Innovation Center Grant Program. Other philanthropic organizations also contributed, including the Sorenson Legacy Foundation and The George S. and Dolores Dore’ Eccles Foundation. These funds have combined to create a revitalized and techy environment for the new coworking space located at 375 South Carbon Avenue in Price, Utah.
The BTAC now offers one day, week long and monthly subscriptions to the coworking space in addition to the leasable office space in the building. Amenities include free parking, security, a professional business address, 24-hour access, fiber internet, mail service, printing service, phone booths, an event space, conference meeting rooms, easy monthly billing and a coworking lounge. The general public can rent conference rooms or the large event space for half or full day events.
What does the future look like for the BTAC? More improvements and amenities are planned for the building. Presently, the restrooms are getting a makeover to be more user friendly with touchless fixtures and a modern design. Even more exciting is the current renovation of the kitchen space located at the BTAC. It is in the works to become a commercial kitchen that can be leased by the day or week for those aspiring culinary entrepreneurs within the community that have a recipe they want to make and sell.
Other enhancements in the works include partnerships with other coworking spaces within Utah, training events for entrepreneurs and new businesses, an A-Z business resource alliance to foster growth, business mentoring, virtual reality room, homework hub and more.
