It was a delight to see some of your faces on our CO.STARTERS Community Chat today and hear how creative you have been in meeting businesses where they are and staying engaged.
Here are a few things we wanted to share with you this week.
Member Mondays: Coffee with CO.STARTERS
Going forward we will be hosting Member Mondays: Coffee with CO.STARTERS every other week. Use this link to join us Monday, April 27th at 2pm Eastern. If you have any specific questions you would like to ask other members of the community feel free to email those to me prior to the call.
Coming Soon: Rebuild
We’re hard at work creating a new program to help existing businesses respond to the COVID-19 crisis and rebuild their businesses. Modeled after our Core program, it will be designed to be multi-session, delivered virtually, and specifically address our current context as part of our new Road to Recovery initiative. While we don’t have all the details ready to share yet, we wanted to let you know a couple things. First, we will make this program available to our Standard Members; more on that in the coming weeks. Second, we’ll be offering this program to entrepreneurs directly ourselves for those not connected to a community. To this end, we’ll be enlisting the help of certified Facilitators. While our goal is for them to prioritize their local community first, we’d love to work with facilitators who have additional capacity to meet this need. We’ll communicate directly with them, but wanted to give you a heads up.
Weekly Roundup of Opportunities & Resources
We’ve put together another roundup of events, articles, and podcasts for this week. Feel free to check them out to support your own work or share them with your community to support your entrepreneurs.
Thank you so much for the work you are doing and how you are holding down the fort in so many communities.
Molly and the CO.STARTERS Team
