Grow Your Business in Pasco County

Starting and growing a business takes a lot of dedication. Everyone starts a business for a reason. Maybe you wanted to be your own boss, or had a better way of serving the customer, or you have an innovation that will transform an industry. No matter the reason, you have a passion and it drives you to succeed.

Many businesses start off with a bang and then stall; they don’t grow and the owner loses the passion around the motivation that got them started; and soon you become the “head employee” rather than the owner.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could leave your business for a week or two and it doesn’t skip a beat?  How about having the information you need to develop the proper systems that will help you make the important decisions and allow YOU to be the force behind your business growth.  The Pasco Economic Development Council and Pasco Enterprise Network has contracted with DE, Inc. to offer the SPARC Business Framework to Pasco County businesses wanting to grow sustainably.  The SPARC Business Framework is a proven system for helping you become more strategic in how you run your business with the ultimate goal of having your business become self-sustaining.

SPARC is a systematic approach to growing your business and includes 6 key steps:

  • Define Your Passion
  • Determine Your Growth Stage
  • Assess Current resources
  • Establish Strategy
  • Create and Action Plan
  • Execute, Monitor and Adjust
