Incubating New Business & Expanding Existing Business
The South Kootenay Business Centre (SKBC) is Community Futures of Greater Trail's newest business development program. The SKBC is a professional office complex for both new and expanding businesses. New business start-ups benefit from mentorship in the business incubator environment, while expanding a business can be as easy as setting a laptop and cellphone on the desk of your new fully furnished office.
We believe that by eliminating costs such as long-term leases, business signage, leasehold improvements, business machines, and office furniture that we can reduce barriers to business. The SKBC allows entrepreneurs to focus time and resources on developing their business rather than establishing it.
Program participants benefit from lease-free, low monthly rental fees on our graduated rental policy starting at $305/month. The SKBC has a fully equipped 465 square foot boardroom, spacious lunchroom and commercial grade multi-function printer/scanner/copier. All suites are fully furnished, brand new spaces in a prime commercial downtown location beside Canada Post, City Hall and Community Futures.
With Community Futures as your neighbor, business mentorship, training and resources are only a few steps away. As a not-for-profit corporation with over 26 years of local business mentorship experience, the goal of Community Futures is to help improve your businesses chance of success. To help you learn more about the SKBC we have created a stand-alone website. Visit www.skbc.ca for more details, or call us at (250)364-2595 to arrange a tour of the facilities.
