Made in Collinwood Launches Technical Assistance Series for Small Businesses

As part of our Made in Collinwood outreach to artisan businesses, Northeast Shores is kicking off 2017 with a free entrepreneurial workshop series!

The core 4-week Neighborhood GROWS series combines the impact of an intensive business development and management series with the personalized attention and detail of one-on-one business counseling sessions to meet the needs of neighborhood-based retail businesses.

The retail industry is nothing short of a rollercoaster ride, but with the right planning you can be prepared to make educated decisions to remain competitive and profitable. While the core of a retail based business does not change much from location to location, the neighborhood you open your business in does affect what you sell and how you sell it.

This training series presented by Northeast Shores Development Corporation and the Hispanic Business Center gives you the tools and expert knowledge needed to open or expand your business in the greater Collinwood community.
