Entrepreneurs and “wantrepreneurs” can learn how to start their own business this spring at Edmonds Community College’s new Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

“Our instructors are local experts from South Snohomish and North King counties and will offer practical, in-the-trenches perspectives,” said David Voetmann, a product developer and designer who runs the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. “PRIMER will demystify the usual corporate-sounding mumbo-jumbo.”
Classes will be held 6-8 p.m. on Wednesdays at The Facility Makerspace, Monroe Hall, room 121, 6606 196th St. SW., Lynnwood. After the introductory class, each class will feature a hands-on project.
Future iterations of the course will incorporate feedback from the community. Submit ideas on the Edmonds CC website: edcc.edu/startup.
