Berkshire Economic Recovery Project Technical Assistance Program

The Berkshire Economic Recover Project (BERP) Technical Assistance Program is a cohort-based technical assistance series for small businesses and organizations located in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Each cohort indicated below is capped at 9 (nine) businesses per class, with that cohort going through a 2-hour initial workshop together, followed by required independent work, and then concluding with up to two hours of free one-on-one technical assistance provided by the cohort TA provider. This process is meant to provide each business the key structural guidance and individualized support to help them recover, rebound, and become more resilient in our current economic landscape.

Registering for any of these cohorts is a commitment to completing it. By registering, you are claiming a limited opportunity only offered to 9 businesses in each cohort. Below, please find the information about each of our technical assistance providers and registration links for our Fall 2022 BERP Technical Assistance Program Cohorts.
