Here at the SBDC, we have been busy!
Food Finance Institute Boot Camp
We were proud to co-host part 1 of a Food Finance Institute Boot Camp last week for some local food businesses who are looking to grow. While every owner participating could not ignore the challenges of COVID-19 on their businesses, the course still brought a wave of optimism as participants considered the new opportunities the event brought.
Below, you will find additional opportunities and resources for food-based businesses.
Leadership Growth Opportunities
Effective leadership is key to the success of any organization - perhaps now more than ever. In our currently tumultuous world, there are many elements we cannot control. Yet one support we can provide is to build our skills and the skills of our team.
This fall, we are offering 5 a la carte leadership training options for yourself or the team (discount available for 3 or more!). Additionally, next week we are offering a no-cost course on leading through uncertainty during COVID-19. Learn more below!
All fall courses will be offered as live, virtual courses for the health and safety of our participants. Our full fall catalog will be coming soon!
COVID Response Guide
This week, we released our free COVID response guide for small businesses. As we began to offer our initial consultations with entrepreneurs back in March, we quickly saw a pattern of overwhelm among business owners as they navigated entirely new ways of doing business, trying to keep their employees safe, and understanding how to keep their business finances afloat. Therefore, we've included these and other topics in our workbook guide - a place where you can reflect on your experiences so far and set goals for the future.
