PITTSFIELD, Mass. — 1Berkshire, in partnership with Berkshire Regional Planning Commission and with support from the United States Economic Development Administration, announced the final slate of technical assistance offerings of the Berkshire Economic Recovery Program (BERP).
The Berkshire Economic Recovery Program Technical Assistance series has been able to support more than 80 businesses through targeted training offerings, resulting in notable business improvements, and quantified by the over $800,000 in funding collectively accessed by businesses through their participation. Going into the Summer of 2023, the series continues with two final cohorts: "Jumpstarting Your Crowdfunding Campaign" with Laura Christensen, and "Social Media and Digital Marketing Basics" with Francesca Olsen.
Participants in each topical cohort will join a scheduled kickoff workshop with the technical assistance provider. Upon completion of the workshop, each participant will be provided up to two hours of free one-on-one technical assistance from the consultant leading the workshop.
The BERP Technical Assistance series is free, and offered to any business in the Berkshires. Each cohort has a capacity of seven participating businesses, so space is very limited and registration is required.
