The City of Richmond has launched a Business Resilience Program to help local entrepreneurs recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and adapt their businesses so they can emerge from the crisis thriving and able to withstand future economic shocks.
The program provides businesses with tools and resources from experts including videos, templates and worksheets that can be accessed at the user’s own pace over the next year. It is designed to take an entrepreneur through the process of assessing their current situation, developing new plans and taking simple and achievable steps to strengthen their business. Users of the Richmond Business Resilience Program will also have access to an online community of local entrepreneurs sharing their best practices and ideas, as well as one-on-one support from the City’s Economic Development Office.
Richmond-based businesses and entrepreneurs can access the free program through an online learning platform delivered by the City’s Economic Development office and powered by Spring Activator, a leading global incubator and accelerator empowering entrepreneurs to build better businesses.
