Build Your Market will teach business owners how to:

•Identify and explore growth opportunities

•Develop a competitive advantage

•Choose the most effective marketing tactics

This course is offered over four Thursdays, April 11 through March 2, from 8:30 a.m. through noon at the Center for Business & Innovation, 4220 6th Ave. SE in Lacey.
