1Berkshire Announces Spring/Summer 2024 Technical Assistance Offerings

April 25th, 2024 – Berkshire County, MA – 1Berkshire, thanks in part to funding from the United States Department of Agriculture, is excited to announce their next slate of technical assistance offerings through the Berkshire Economic Recovery Program (BERP).

Through a highly-successful series of three years of cohorts since 2021, the Berkshire Economic Recovery Program Technical Assistance series has been able to support more than 110 businesses through targeted training offerings, resulting in notable business improvements, and quantified by the over $2,000,000 in funding collectively accessed by businesses through their participation. Going into the Spring/Summer of 2024, the series continues with our next two cohorts: “Jumpstarting Your Crowdfunding Campaign” with Laura Christensen, and “Be Press Ready” with Cathy Husid.

Participants in each topical cohort will join a scheduled kickoff workshop with the technical assistance provider. Upon completion of the workshop, each participant will be provided up to two hours of free one-on-one technical assistance from the consultant leading the workshop.

The BERP Technical Assistance series is FREE, and offered to any business in the Berkshires. Each cohort has a capacity of seven participating businesses, so space is very limited and registration is required. For details on these technical assistance offerings and to register, please visit:
