November 22nd, 2023 – Berkshire County, MA – 1Berkshire, thanks to support from a USDA Small Business Development Grant is excited to announce the launch of their Winter 2023 Technical Assistance Cohorts as a continuation of the Berkshire Economic Recovery Project.
Through a highly-successful series of over two years of cohorts since 2021, the Berkshire Economic Recovery Program Technical Assistance series has been able to support more than 90 businesses through targeted training offerings, resulting in notable business improvements, and quantified by the over $1,000,000 in funding collectively accessed by businesses through their participation. Going into the Winter of 2023, the series continues with two cohorts:, and “Social Media and Digital Marketing Basics” on December 6th with Francesca Olsen and “Jumpstarting Your Crowdfunding Campaign” on January 16th with Laura Christensen.
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.
