Sierra Commons, a local non-profit that focuses on business start-ups, has new leader, but she is not new to Sierra Commons. New Executive Director Hilary Hodge has been involved with Sierra Commons for the past two years and joined the board in March of this year.
As a result of her work with the board, she was hired to be the new Executive Director.
One aspect of the job that Hodge enjoys is working with entrepreneurs… and breaking the mindset that all entrepreneurs are the stuffy, suit-wearing type.*
The next level being development of a workable business plans and marketing strategies to move a businesses forward.
A recent success for Sierra Commons is a local bakery and brewery in Nevada City.
Sierra Commons provides a number of services and resources for entrepreneurs and people with new businesses.
