While it’s heartbreaking to see more and more small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s heartening to see more and more do what they can to help. Today, gener8tor announced it will be joining that cause by announcing an emergency virtual program for struggling businesses.
Running April 6-10, the MN Emergency Response Program (ERP) will assist businesses in identifying, understanding, and securing resources to weather the outbreak. The ERP (a free extension of the gBETA programs) will include daily lunchtime webinars presented by members of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), the Minnesota Small Business Development Centers, and more on topics such as navigating new laws, the process of determining eligibility and applying for Small Business Administration programs, mental health and wellness resources, and others.
The ERP will also include one-on-one virtual office hours with gener8tor team members. Because each business is facing unique challenges during this time, the one-on-one approach is key to providing help, gener8tor said in its release.
The deadline for registration is April 3, and all Minnesota business that register will be include in the program.
If you know any other Minnesota businesses doing what they can to help during the COVID-19 pandemic, please let us know.
