Business Technical Assistance Bizgrid for Opportunity Corridor
Thanks to the combined efforts of the Forward Cities Cleveland Council and Opportunity Corridor Partnership Office and many others, the Opportunity Corridor 'bizgrid' technical assistance chart version 1.0 is complete. The resource grid is intended to assist businesses in Opportunity Corridor Neighborhoods with technical assistance needed to improve their endeavors and develop connections to sustainability, real estate assistance, and access to capital.
A Starting Point for Business Owners
While this is not an exhaustive list, it does provide a starting point where entrepreneurs and business owners can find help for business plans, workshops, legal advice and financial management, among other needs. This Opportunity Corridor Bizgrid is a template that can be easily updated or adapted for other neighborhoods or areas.
Special recognition in this grid's development goes to Philena Seldon, Outreach & Education Coordinator at the Mayor's Office of Sustainability, Christopher Smith, Small Business Development Program Coordinator at Operation HOPE, Inc. and the members of his Small Business Workshop, as well as members of the Forward Cities Council. Their efforts in helping to develop the grid have been invaluable!
