Capacity Building On Demand

The Greenhouse remains committed to providing quality service during the evolving nature of COVID-19, including the delivery of technology-based learning opportunities. Virtual learning pathways are under development to facilitate and guide the entrepreneur’s learning experience. Entrepreneurs are encouraged to continue the capacity building experience through participation in webinars supported by virtual mentoring services. Interested in scheduling a time to meet with a business mentor?

Pathways

This resiliency training pathway provides options for both existing businesses and startups – those considering entrepreneurship in a changing economy. Focus in this pathway includes business planning, financials, client relations and wellness.

The Greenhouse continues to transition our targeted, curated workshops to webinar format. During this time, capacity building opportunities are also available in the libraries of recorded webinars provided at no-cost by our partners, SCORESBDC and SBA. In addition, The Greenhouse will review and recommend training options at our partner sites to provide a balance of capacity building topics.
