Business Essentials


Our Business Essentials are in-person and free-of-charge workshops that offer entrepreneurs and businesses the opportunity to grow their skills.


Some of the perks are:


  • Local business expert or community partner to lead a session.  

  • Each session will involve a “tool” for their business development “toolkit”. 

  • Participants can walk away and use the tool they have learned right away, such as creating a media post on Canva, invoicing in QuickBooks, protecting their online identity, and knowledge for accessing capital, etc.

  • Connect with other small business owners and like-minded people. 

  • The cost is subsidized by the Impact Loan.
