Community Futures Parkland is committed to understanding the needs of small and medium-sized businesses in 88 communities. Our workshops are dynamic and engaging, taught by business owners who understand our communities and the challenges that COVID - 19 have brought. All of the education and coaching sessions will be addressed in a confidential and supportive environment to allow small and medium-sized business owners the ability to work on their business strategies with a clear and positive mindset.
A dynamic, engaging and in-depth workshop series created to support and guide businesses. Topics to include:
Workforce Development (HR)
Strategic Financial Planning
Marketing & Content Development
Social Media Basics
Our Business Advisor Program sets up free one-on-one business coaching conversations for small to medium-sized business owners. If you’re a Parkland based entrepreneur who wants to grow or improve your business in a
specific way, we have a specialist who can help. (Up to $1000 per business in support)
Do you need extra support in your business right now but not able to hire the professional help needed? We have a team that we can refer you to as part of this project, free of charge. That ensures that you get the hands-on support to grow your business in 2021.
Community Futures Parkland PPE reimbursement program is a support available to Parkland based businesses. As a rural small business owner we understand the additional expenses that you have been forced to incur and we want to help in any way we can. To qualify you just need to participate in any of our Local Business Restart Workshops and provide us receipts for your business PPE during the dates of April 1st, 2020 to March 31st, 2021 (Max is $500)
The Local Business Restart Project was created as a direct response to the impact that COVID- 19 pandemic has had on local small and medium-sized businesses. The project goal is to provide much-needed support for Workforce Development, Financial Impact Strategies, E-Commerce Strategies, Marketing Strategies, Social Media Managament and skill-building to assist businesses with pivoting operations or enhancing current offerings to re-open, restart, and maintain operation within the local community.
