The City of Evanston has developed events to support businesses and industries. These include a “Build Your Business Forum” designed for local entrepreneurs and retailers. Robert Condie from the SBDC in Rock Springs spoke to attendees, followed by a local panel of experts. The City also hosts a Business to Business reception geared more toward larger industries. In 2015, the keynote speaker was Donald Collins, the CEO of the Western Research Institute.

The City of Evanston, the Evanston Chamber of Commerce and the Uinta County Economic Development Commission partnered to apply for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for Technical Assistance. The funds will help create the “Tools for Business Success” web program. The business toolkit will be housed on the Chamber website, but with links to both the City and the County. The program features a variety of tools for both new and experienced business owners. The program will provide information on how to write a business plan, hire employees, comply with various tax regulations, and find vital local, state and federal resources for operating a successful business.
