free small business webinars


Welcome to the Small Business Requirements & Resources (SBRR) Free Workshop page.

SBRR workshops are provided by members of the Washington state Small Business Liaison Team (SBLT). The workshops were started in 2019 by three Washington state agencies, the departments of Employment Security, Revenue, and Labor & Industries.

Our workshops provide helpful information around the regulatory relationship with the government and requirements that businesses can use to save unwarranted penalties, and teach best practices, bottom line cost-saving programs, business solutions, consulting services, and more.

We want business owners/representatives to be equipped with information to help them make the best decisions for the long-term health, vitality, and sustainability of their businesses and employees.

Start a Business in WA Workshop

This free, one-hour webinar will give you a strong foundation for starting a business in Washington. It covers planning, registration and licensing, and other regulatory requirements. You'll connect with business liaisons from the Governor's Office of Regulatory Innovation and Assistance, the Secretary of State's Office, and the Departments of Revenue, Employment Security, and Labor and Industries, who will also provide you information about many free or low-cost assistance programs.
