Henderson Business Resource Center celebrates 10th anniversary

The Henderson Business Resource Center, located in the downtown Water Street business district, will celebrate its 10th anniversary Sept. 22.

A small business incubator program operating under the Henderson Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the center’s mission is to benefit home-based or small businesses and to help them to grow into the next level of their success. The center offers furnished offices for rent with short-term leases, phone services, high speed data, meeting rooms, business counseling, resources for funding, opportunities for business education and networking.

The Henderson Business Resource Center was developed under the leadership of Alice Martz, who recently retired after 14 years as chamber CEO.

“The resource center is yet another of Alice’s many achievements with the chamber,” said Rick Smith, chairman of the chamber’s board of directors. “That, and hiring Rebecca Fay to run it, were both great decisions.”

The HBRC has been led by Rebecca Fay, its director, for the past three years.

“The program has continued to be successful because of the support by the entire community.” Fay said. “Wells Fargo Bank, USAA Savings Bank and the City of Henderson are some of our biggest supporters, but there are numerous other companies and individuals that support the HBRC and its programs, bringing great value to the incubator. We are proud to offer resources and services that small business owners can rely on. Anybody who walks through our doors will walk away with answers or resources that will assist them.”

Over the last 10 years, the center has graduated numerous entrepreneurs, such as Imagine Communications, K2 Energy Solutions, American National Insurance Gavin Walker Agency, We the People, Desert Living Inc., Attorney Lindsay Statlander, Attorney Dan Potucek and most recently, Nevada State High School.

K2 Energy Solutions recently in a special issue of Inc. Magazine, and was recently ranked 79 in America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies, http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/news.html?d=230234.
